Episode Info:

Top hunter rider and trainer Sandy Ferrell began riding at the age of 4 and progressed through a stellar junior career competing in the pony, hunter/jumper and equitation divisions. She later opened her own business, Royall Show Hunters and has coached her clients to numerous championships at A-circuit horse shows. She is a six-time regional professional winner of the World Champion Hunter Rider competition and the winner of the 2008 WCHR Hunter Spectacular. In this episode, Sandy details the progression of her riding career, shares some of her hobbies and interests outside of horses and explains why she wears a safety vest every time she rides—even in the show ring. She also explains in detail why riding position and body control are so important and expands on some of the common problems and fixes with exercises from her recent article, “Hunter Riders: Equitation Counts!” in Practical Horseman’s summer issue.
