A new walk! Feeling when a horse is tracking up though all of the walks....

"What if.. like many riders you keep hearing that your horse needs to be more connected and balanced and connected at the walk. To do this, all we have to do (technically) is to keep our horse tracking up at all of the walk gaits.  What does that mean?  How do you know when "it" finally happens?  Now you can watch what happens as Susan takes Darrien to a new level at the walk by focusing on how he is staying connected in his neck as he is tracking up"

This was a breakthrough session for Susan and Darrien.  It has taken us two years to reach this level as Darrien (Susan's new FEI horse) had to work through a lot of physical and mental issues before he was ready.  In this session he changed his walk!  It was very exciting to see as for the first time Darrien is staying connected and in balance (round/on the aids/in front of the legs, on the bit, packaged and so on) as he tracks up at each of the walks (collected, lengthening/extension and medium). Now you can see the process we have used and the results.

Can you see how Darrien's walk changed?  Are you ready to try this Horse and Rider Awareness technique on your horse?  Stay tuned as there are two more videos from this session and you will be able to see that even Darrien's trot has now changed!
