Improving engagement, activity and balance. Trot/Walk #2. Diamond patte...



"Would you like to see a horse change it's trot and walk as it learns how to use it's haunches? Now you can! Watch what happens as Melody begins to go into self carriage while using the Diamond pattern"

This was a very exciting session for us. For the first time, Trudy is able to get Melody to carry herself in self carriage! To do this with used the Diamond pattern. The Diamond pattern teaches a horse how to use their haunches better. As a result a horse will lift it's back, shift back more, and the rider is able to feel when they are in balance.
Can you see how Melody is not starting to move differently? Have you tried this on your horse yet?
