Masterclass with Lucinda
Skinnies are a fashion on cross-country. When they were first introduced we saw many run outs and refusals. Use them in your training they are really useful to develop the communication system between you and your horse. Keep your horse focused by “putting him in the tube” – having both your legs wrapped positively around him. With your hands slightly apart as you approach at a steady pace, stay sitting up even as he takes off, throwing your shoulders forward too early will throw your horse off balance. Make sure your horse can always see a way through the fence and out the other side
