Canter/counter canter. Balancing for a new level. Transitions. dressage ...

"Would you like your horses canter to be easier to ride and influence?  Watch what happens as Beau learns how to stay more connected and balanced in canter and canter/trots"

If you are riding dressage, its all about balance and connection as you move up the levels. What most people do not know is that each time their horse goes to a new level, that they change their balance.  The secret is knowing that this will happen and having the tools to go to that next level of balance.  In this session we focus on keeping Beau connected (listening to Susan's aid) and and in balance (not on the forehand) at the canter and canter/trot transitions. To do this Susan focuses on where she feels Beau get tight or starts taking shorter steps.
