Haunches in (travers/renvers) Windy, spooky day. Can you stay connected?...

"How can you use haunches in to improve your horses balance?  It's easy!  Just do them especially if it is a windy day and the horses are spooking and acting up"

What a start to Season 4.  It was a windy day and the horses were bouncing off the walls.  To keep them connected the riders had no option other than to take more control of their horses attention.  To do this we rode many different exercises with the goal of keeping the horses focused even with all the crazy stuff going on outside the ring. Even with all the excitement, both Trudy on Ani and Susan on Beau took their horses to a new level of connection.
