Beginnings of the walk pirouette/turn on haunches S4 Dressage training

"Have you always wanted to know how... to ride a turn on the haunches or walk pirouette? Now you can watch as Trudy asks Melody to stay connected with her and stepping from behind as they focus on the beginnings of these movements.

The walk pirouettes and turns on haunches can be used to teach a horse how to stay balanced from side to side and also teach them how to listen more to both the riders rein connection and leg aids at the same time. 

Are you ready to try this exercise? At first you might feel a little clumsy as your notice that your horse may not understand what you are asking. This is normal and a good thing! From that point you will develop more of a connection.
