Counter canter. Halt and backing. Keeping the connection and balance. Dr...



"Issues in training. Time to ask for more balance and connection in the counter canter and halt backs"

In this session our goal is simple. All Susan has to do is keep Beau in an uphill balanced and without showing issues. Those who have been following Susan and Beau know that is not always so willing to move forward freely. He has never been thrilled about "adding more activity" or taking up the "connection" from Susan's legs to her rein. This week, he also decided to change the way he is backing. For what ever reason, Beau has decided he should lean on the reins and stick his nose towards his chest. Now you can watch what we do to teach him another response...

Does your horse ever tell you that it does not feel like doing something you want it to do? What do you do to get past those issues?
