Getting more active in the Lateral work. Haunches in/Shoulder in.. S4 Ho...

"For those who ride their horses in connection and balance... Can you hear your horse say, "Why are you holding in my mouth and asking me to move forward from behind?" This is confusing for both the horse and the rider until they finally "get it" Once they do, everything starts to make sense. Now you can watch what happens as Susan asks Beau to stay more connected in his trot and lateral work"

There is a magical place, for those who ride a horse that is connected and in balance, where something happens. The horse becomes lighter to our aids and willing responds. Of course, this does take a little practice and, as in the case of many horses, may take a few years. Now you can watch the changes in Beau as Susan asks him to step up with more activity from behind so that they are more connected in the trot and the lateral movements in it.

Can you see it happening? Are you ready to try this on your horse? Let us know how it works for you.
