Understanding Foot-Fall and Influencing Movement by Mark Rashid

Understanding Foot-Fall and Influencing Movement
Mark Rashid

Mark has spent most of his adult life studying equine and human biomechanics, physiology, psychology and movement and has put those studies to practical use in his work with horses and riders.

In this DVD, Mark helps viewers understand their horse's footfall and cadence by showing them how to determine when each individual foot is moving and where it is going. He then goes on to show how to use this movement to the rider's advantage during training and riding. Mark also covers a number of issues that can interfere with the movement of the feet and how to avoid interfering with the horse's movement.

Mark Rashid (pronounced RASH-id) is an internationally acclaimed horse trainer known for his ability to understand the horse’s point of view and solve difficult problems with communication rather than force. He began working with horses at age ten, when he met the “old man,” who taught him to work with horses, not against them, and to listen to what the horse is trying to say. Mark’s clinics center on one-on-one work with horse and rider and are immensely popular with people around the world.

When Mark decided to study the martial art of aikido as a way to improve his horsemanship, he brought the same quiet determination to it that he exhibits in his work with horses. After years of practice, he earned a black belt in Yoshinkan aikido and now teaches the “way of harmony” in the local dojo.

Mark worked full time on ranches for many years gathering herds, managing stock, and training horses. When time permits, he still enjoys working on ranches near his home in Estes Park, Colorado.

Mark has been a guest on NPR’s The Horse Show and was featured on the Nature series on PBS. He is the author of six books - Considering the Horse, A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color, Horses Never Lie, Life Lessons from a Ranch Horse, Horsemanship Through Life, and his latest Big Horses, Good Dogs, and Straight Fences.
