Going back to the baiscs. The Diamond pattern at the walk.

"Would you like to see another rider practice the Diamond pattern at the walk for the first time? It is not as easy as it looks, but makes a huge difference in how the rider is using their aids to connect with their horse"

In this session I introduce the Diamond pattern to Trudy and Ani. Even though it sounds so simple, the Diamond exercise challenges riders as it is very clear to them when the horse is not moving its haunches or shoulders over. Now you can watch the process work at the walk.

Have you tried the Diamond pattern yet? What did you experience?
