Turns on the haunches/walk Pirouette. Staying engaged and connected S4 d...

"Testing one two three. Can you keep your horse on the outside rein and leg when you are doing the turn on the haunches/walk pirouettes?"

Keeping a horse straight and in balance for the turn on the haunches movements is not as easy as it might seem, or even look when you see a rider do it the right way. The facts are, if your horse is not on the outside rein and leg during these movements, they are not really straight or connected. Now you can watch what Susan is doing with Beau to isolate what they are doing for these movements.
Can you see how Beau changes as he keeps the connection and straightness and when he loses it? Are you ready to try this on your horse now?
