Canter Trot Transitions. Adding the Shoulder In and Leg Yields for better connection an balance.

"Would you like to improve your Canter Trot Transitions? Try adding the shoulder in and leg yield movements! "

In this blast from the past we focused on getting Beau more balanced in his canter trot transitions. At that time, Beau had the tendency to flip his head up, and dropping his back as a result, in the canter trot transitions both up and down. To balance Beau for the transitions we add shoulder ins and leg yields to get him to be in a better balance.
Can you see how Beau's transitions begin to change as Susan prepares him in different ways to see how to get the response she is looking for? Can you see how this could help your horse?
