Going back to the basics. Canter. More engagement and connection with t...



"Improving the canter with the Diamond pattern. Would you like to know what you can do to get your horse more comfortable to ride and easier to influence with the canter?  Try this pattern and see what it can do for you and your horse."

The canter can be the most difficult gait of all to be able to balance and canter a horse at. Here you will see how we use the Diamond pattern so that Susan can teach Beau how to use his haunches and shoulders better. When Susan rides him into one of the corners, she asks Beau to bring his haunches over first, than his shoulder. As a result you will see Beau stays more balanced and connected.

Have you tried the Diamond pattern with your horse yet? What kind of results are you getting?
