Thanks for following along here. This week’s video focuses on us working to move off of my inside leg aid. We ended with me carrying the whip on Mascot’s shoulder, to reinforce what I want when I ask him to yield over.
This is a thinking horse, and he doesn’t like to be wrong. Nothing frustrates him more than not understanding what I am asking, though his reaction is typically to just stop.
In this video you can see a snip it of us working through and communicating to achieve better balance in the canter:
In the upcoming week we will be working on faster response in the walk, and more precise transitions overall.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
