"Can you ride the Diamond pattern at the Trot?  Your Riding Challenge for the week"

In this session Trudy is riding the Diamond pattern at the trot for the first time. The Diamond pattern is a wonderful awareness technique that shows a rider how they need to use their riding position to ask the horse to  move  it's shoulders and hind quarters where they would like them to be.Now you can watch how this team works through the pattern and see the changes that came as a result.   Check out the changes in how Ani is moving at the 4.30 time mark. 

What did you see happening? Have you tried the Diamond pattern at the trot yet? Tell us what you are experiencing.
