Trot. How to connect a horse from the back to the front. The beginnings...

"Connecting a horse from the back to the front.  The beginnings. Are you ready to ride your horse in a new level of balance and connection at the trot?  Would you like to see this loos with a horse that is new to it?"

In this session Trudy is riding Melody at the trot.  Her goal is the same goal that many who ride horses are trying to achieve. She wants Ani to balance differently so that she is more uphill.  This is not so easy for Melody as she is built downhill.  To do this Trudy will need to activate Melody's back feet so that she lifts her back. When this happens, a little rainbow will show in Melody's neck. A sign that she really is connecting her back end to the front. This level of connection is new for Melody and is a great way for you to see how you can achieve the same connection with your horse.

Is your horse connected at the trot? How do you know? Are you ready to try this on your horse?
