Did you know that the internet can be an excellent tool to make you a better rider? Of course it’s important to take regular lessons with a talented trainer you respect, but there are a number of ways that you can supplement this learning with information from the internet. Here’s how to make it work.

Subscribe to Video Services

There are a number of subscription video services available for riders. For a monthly fee, you gain access to training tutorials, videotaped clinics, and even assessments of horse show tests and performances. You can learn a lot by watching videos and listening to expert analysis and advice. Depending on your discipline and goals with your horse, subscribing to a video service might be a great way to further develop yourself as a rider.

Read Up

There are countless articles and blogs to read about riding. You can find tons of information through equine publications’ websites, Facebook, and even horse forums. Consider subscribing to the blogs of top riders and trainers to get the best information.

Watch Competitions

There are videos of countless competitions available online. Watching the top riders in your discipline is a great way to find ways that you can improve your own riding. Watch the riders and their horses carefully – sometimes the best riding is founded in the smallest details. Try to compare the winner with the second, third, and fourth-place riders and horses. What’s different amongst them? The more you can learn, the better you can critique and improve your own riding.

Find a New Horse

If you’re looking for a new riding or competition partner, the internet is the perfect place to start your search. Horse for sale classifieds on sites like TopHorse.com.au can start you on your journey to your new riding partner. Additionally, there are tons of resources on buying a new horse available – if you have questions about buying a new horse or finding the horse that’s right for you, chances are you can find the answers online.

Use Caution

Remember, anyone can publish anything on the internet. When you turn to the internet to become a better rider, make sure that the information you are receiving is accurate. It is best to take any advice you receive with caution, and to make an effort to look for information presented by top riders, trainers, and publications.

The internet is a powerful tool and, when you’re also taking lessons with a trainer, the internet can be a great way to supplement your learnings and to make you a better rider.
