Going back to the basics. Connecting with a lighter rein. Walk. Camille...



Can you keep a light even feel of the reins while you are riding? Are you ready to go back to the basics? Let's start at the walk"

This is Camille on Polo. We are bringing Polo back from an injury and have decided it is time to go back to the basics. In this session we focus on Camille feeling that she can follow Polo's mouth at the walk and in changes of direction. To do this, she will need to keep him in front of her leg aids. As a result, Camille will discover new ways to use her riding position and become more effective with her aids.

What about you? Can you follow your horses's head movements with a light rein contact?
