Series 1, DVD2 Rising Trot: Working on the Bit


Mary shows the rider how to gain the horse’s attention and the horse’s commitment to the task at hand: working on the bit. Once this is accomplished, the rider can develop the correct interaction between herself and the horse, thus establishing the foundation for self-carriage. 1hr 25min 34sec.

SKU: N/A Category:



A series of DVDs demonstrating Mary’s unique approach to riding and teaching, which encourages riders to develop an intuitive feel for riding through imitation and experimentation. She provides simple exercises and innovative imaging techniques that lead to better concentration, relaxation and body awareness. Her teaching helps the rider unite mind and body (while avoiding shoulds and oughts) to become a truly natural rider.


The DVDs in series 1 are cheaper than those in series 2. This reflects the difference in their quality. There are some crackles in the sound of series 1, some inconsistencies in the colour of various ‘takes’, and moments when the sound is not quite synchronised with the movement of the lips. The content, however, is second to none, and I recommend them as an introduction to my work. The content of these DVDs is presupposed in series 2.
