Going back to the basics at the trot. Rein Connection. Changes of direc...

"One of the most difficult times to keep an even connection on both sides of the reins is at the trot? Watch this video to see what you can do" 

In this session we focus on how Trudy is following the movement of the trotthrough the reins. The trot is the most challenging gait for riders who are riding on a contact. Especially the rising/posting trot. This is where many riders will unconsciously start leaning on the reins. Now you can see what I do with Trudy to help her become more aware of what she is really doing with the reins at the trot while changing directions.

What did you discover from watching this video? Are you ready to try this on your horse? Tell us what you experience!
