Part 4: On Your Way to Collection
In this DVD, your horse continues his training in the snaffle. Building your basics with DRESSAGE PRINCIPLES will teach your horse natural balance and self carriage. It will also get him to relax his mind and body in all 3 gaits. You'll now work on lengthening and shortening your horse's stride. You establish three speeds in the walk, trot, and canter, that you can regulate without resistance from your horse. When he responds softly, remains relaxed and without resistance to the rider's natural aids, he is understanding what you want!
You will promote bending to increase suppleness and flexibility, and you will also improve his balance by gaining better control of his body position. Transitions on straight lines, more advanced lateral training, and building more roundness in your horse's frame are all the beginnings to being "ON YOUR WAY TO COLLECTION."
The variety of lessons and patterns in this DVD will teach you to read your horse by analyzing his responses and balance. Let your horse "tell you" to go back to simpler lessons to get more solid, or when you have willingness, continue with more advanced work. Give your horse a solid foundation - by completing these stages, your pleasure horse will be prepared for the disciplines and challenges of competition. Don't forget to have fun with your horse in these stages - drilling or training alone will not build a solid, lasting foundation.
