Trot. On the aids/contact with more activity.Two horses.Training level and Second level.

"Now you can compare the Contact/On the aids/On the bit with two  horses at different levels of training warming up at the trot. Can you see the difference between a training level and a 2nd level level horse?"

In this session we focus on keeping both the horses connected. The basics for connection are basically the same. The difference is that now Susan's horse Beau needs to be able to engage or sit down more while he stays on the bit for 2nd level, Trudy's horse Ani is going to compete in Training level. This is the 7th time we have asked her to stay on the contact/on the aids/on the bit. 

Can you see how the same basics apply to all levels of training?
