Randi Thompson's insight:
These are the topics that we discussed... (Yes, just in this video!) . How to know if your horse is in front of the aids by using a metronome. Rising vs sitting trot. Which one should you do? Is your horse "Stepping up from behind into connection" of your reins? Ask your horse to step up with the inside hind to an "alive" rein on inside. When you get the horse to step up to one side, praise them than switch sides. When does your horse drop the connection? Frame of rein and aids. What does that mean? From back to front Side to Side How do you know if your horse is on the outside rein and leg? Leg yield for checking outside reins and legs. Front of the saddle should be pointed in on curves Mini stretches. Can your horse do them on both sides? Keeping connection with rhythm of the gait. Metronome. Bring your inside seat bone towards the horses inside ear. Lunge line to feel what that size circle should feel like for the rider and horse. What did you discover from watching this Horse and Rider Awareness Video that will make a difference in how you are asking your horse to stay connected with you?
