Rein Contact for the 2nd time. Staying connected. S4 Riding instructor

"Taking up the contact with the reins at the canter for the 2nd time! This is what happens with most riders who are working on the next level of connection and balance. It might be exactly what you need to see"

Trudy and Ani are moving up the training scale. Now Trudy is ready to pick up the reins and ask Ani to connect with her from her leg aids. This is not as easy as it sounds, especially at the canter.  Trudy had been riding Ani on a loose rein like a green horse.  Now, she is learning how to balance Ani in a new way.  

Is your horse balanced at the canter yet?  What did you learn from watching this video?
