It's time to stretch into the contact for the 4th time. S4 Riding instr...

"Are you finally... ready to ask your horse to allow you take up contact from the reins?  Now you can watch what this rider is doing to show her horse what that means with the stretch at the walk"

Many riders are not sure what that "stretchy" thing is that dressage riders do.  When done correctly, the horses back will lift up as horse stretches into the riders rein contact as a result of rider asking them to step up more from their hind feet. 

Now you can watch as Trudy teaches Ani how to stretch into the contact. This is the 4th session that we have focused on this and you will see what happens to most horses and riders as they go through that process.
