Half Halts in the Shoulder in and Travers. Walk. 2nd level dressage tra...

"It's time to improve the quality of your horse's shoulder ins and haunches in with half halts" 

The trick for most riders who are going through the levels of dressage is to keep their horses in balance for the lateral work without changing the length of the horses strides. Now you can watch a real rider, Susan (not a pro) and her horse Beau as they work through the same issues that you will probably have as you move your horse up the levels and into a new balance and connection.

Can you see the changes that are happening in what Beau is doing as we focus more on how he is responding to the half halts in these lateral movements?
