George Williams just has a beautiful way of communicating his training vision for dressage horses.  Their  development requires attention to the subtle aspects of effective ridinge: maintaining  suppleness, rhythm, and thoroughness in all movements performed.

George's wisdom has been tested with proven success on the International stage and his approach for the training of dressage horses originate drectly from the training scale.  He refers to the training scale at minute 26 and shares his thoughts to Jessica Stark, the quiet, competent rider on the 11 year old Holsteiner mare Ultra Sonic while schooling grand prix movements.

George states in the video that rhythm and relaxation support throughness and throughness is needed for all other positive results.   It is coaxing softness and suppleness in all aspects of the ride that brings a good horse to a great horse and brings a talented horse into a champion. This horse and rider combination is being guided step by step to supple the body and be fluid while keeping energetic forward tempo.

George Williams does it effortlessly; communicating with informative teaching, detailed instructions coaching the rider and guiding their progress.

This strong riding pair and George’s coaching style rewards us with the true mechanics of dressage and what we must focus on to bring the best out of any dressage horse and rider combination.

Any serious rider would be so lucky to be under George's kind and clear tutelage.

And if we are not, then we are blessed to have this video to bring us one step closer to the understand of relaxing our horses, connecting and bending their bodies while maintaining an energetic forward tempo thereby constantly improving throughness.  This lesson video reminds us to cherish these aspects and rewards us when we truly get to understand them.

Finally, further into the session, we see Jessica and her mare working the canter where again, softness and suppleness becomes the mantra and basis of success for the pirouettes.

In the last minutes of the video lesson, George shares that it is the subtle improvements like relaxation, suppleness, rhythm, and thoroughness that bring a talented horse like Ultrasonic to a magnificent contender at the highest level.

Hats off to George Williams and his coaching of Jessica and Ultra Sonic.  We had the pleasure of witnessing the use of subtle dressage tools we can all adopt to moving our horses closer to greatness.
