Going back to the basics. Trot. More engagement with the Diamond Pattern.

What if...  you could finally understand what it feels like to have your horse engage its back and connect with you at the trot?  There is!  Try riding the Diamond pattern"

In this session we focus more on how Susan is asking Beau to use his haunches with the Diamond pattern. In the past, Beau has had the tendency to slow down his steps when ever he was asked to bring his shoulder or haunches in.  Now we are asking him to stay more connected and you can see how that changes what he is doing.

What happens to your horse in the lateral work?  Does it slow down it's step and lose it's balance?  Are you ready to try the Diamond pattern yet to improve what is happening?
