Steps to connection. Timing of the aids of the rider at the walk. Week...



"Oh, how much fun. Here we are on week 3 of the Steps to Connection and the Timing of the Riders Aids. Check out Trudy and Ani at the walk."

In this session we go back to the basics at the walk.  First, Trudy will check to see if Ani is connecting (responding) to her aids.  Trudy starts with the rein aid and continues through the use of her lower leg.  Once we add Trudy's lower leg  Trudy becomes aware of how crooked Ani has been moving and that now...  she can keep her straighter. This is what all riders go through when they first feel straightness like this and is perfect for everyone to see.
