Renvers and shoulder in trot. Adding the activity with curves and circle...



"Renvers (haunches in) and Shoulder In. Do they confuse you? Now you can watch how we practice them by adding the feeling of a circle or curve"

In the world of dressage competition the riders and horses are required to show both the shoulder in and renvers starting at 2nd level. Why would anyone else want to use them? Because they connect our horses more with us! How can you ride them more effectively? Add circles and curves that will show you if your horse is really moving it's shoulders and haunches where you want them to be. Now you can watch what Susan is doing with Beau to as she practices moving the different parts of his body. Beau is not so thrilled about this...

Have you tried riding a shoulder in or renvers yet? What do you find is happening?
