Win a cordeo!
I am so passionate about how versatile the Cordeo (neck rope) is, and saddened not more of us know about its many uses.
I think the first thing that comes to mind when hearing "cordeo" or "neck rope" is that you need mad riding skills to use it... but that is only one way to use it; to ride bridle-less in it.
I am a nervous rider... yet I use a cordeo every time i hop on a horse. How, you ask? I use it as a "holy crap strap", as a friend of mine so lovingly puts it.
You see, I tend to lose my balance, and so does my mare. Not a good combo. To give me security and keep my hands from clutching the reins, I use the Cordeo... which puts me in a position that is ideal for rising trot or cantering. That way I keep my balance, and the reins are nice and loose.
The Cordeo can also be adjusted to sit higher up on the horse's neck, in a spot that is ideal for proper hand placement during jumping. So, if you're learning to jump or struggle to keep your hands in the right position, the Cordeo is perfect for you.
It is such a versatile tool, and I think a lot of other riders out there could benefit from it. Not only advanced riders who are going bridle-less, or those doing liberty and groundwork, but also riding schools, beginners, and nervous nellies.
That is why I am giving away 2 cordeos!
- To a nervous nelly or beginner/riding school and
- To someone wanting to ride bridle-less or use it for liberty training
What I need from you in return:
- Use the cordeo and report back to me what you liked, what you would change, and most importantly, how it helped you!
If you would like to enter the draw, leave a comment below telling us a little bit about where you are at in your horse riding/training journey and how you would benefit from a cordeo.
