Those who know Melody's history have seen that teaching some horses to relax in the training process can take some time.  Especially when that horse is hot and nervous.  It has taken Trudy 4 years to get her to where she is now.  It is a big change and we filmed the process so you can see what might be happening with your horses training progress.  In this session we added curves and circles as a way to keep Melody more relaxed and connected in the canter.

Are you ready to try this with your horse?  Let us know how it works for you!
