Like all body appendages, knowing what to do (or what not to do) with your hands is so important to our riding. In this edition of RIDE WITH JANICE, Janice will give you some 'ride changing' advice about how your hand's position, movement, and muscle tension should be factored into each ride.

During this episode, Janice will remind you of two main principles -: 1. Do something/nothing with your hands, so you don't do something with your hands - Confused? You won't be! 2. Think about muscle tension and the dynamic nature of how much pressure we need in our hands to get a response from our horse.
