Canter. How to connect your riding position for a half half, adding the ...



"Is your horse listening to your seat and legs at the canter?. Now you can see what I do with this rider to help her become more aware of how to use her seat and legs to create a half halt to get her horses attention"


This is Susan on Darrien. When Darrien first came to us he had a few issues and our goal was to get him to relax more to what Susan was asking him to do. In this session added the neck strap so that Susan could focus more on connecting him to her seat and legs through the half halts. She is riding him on a long rein. Watch what happens as Darrien become more aware of what Susan wants him to do. You will see his shoulders and back start to come up as he goes into a better balance.
