"Whoa," "stand still," and "quit" – just a few words you might say while mounting or dismounting from your horse. Join horse trainer Jessica Aspenwall to talk about safely mounting and dismounting your equine partner. Move those feet to the log for a step up. Get those feet to remain still while getting down. Learn some teaching tips that you can use to train your horse so you can safely get in and out of the saddle.
Jessica trains horses with a focus on all-around performance. After gaining an Equine Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls she found herself training for a couple different barns in southeast Minnesota. With experience teaching mules and horses, she has been exposed to a lot of equine personalities.
To keep things fresh, you may find Jessica competing in the local All-Around Cowgirl Challenge, a barrel race, roping cattle or along the trail! A good trainer is continually learning and improving their techniques. A variety of objects and obstacles is something that comes in handy when training trail partners and you may see some those in use in our three-part Trail Tips with Jess.
Funding for this event provided by the Minnesota Horse Council.
