02/2014 - Debbie McDonald - 4th level, Straightness, Pirouettes, and half pass

Debbie McDonald works on straightness, canter pirouettes, and half pass. The total running time of this five part video is 36 minutes. 

Video Description

Debbie McDonald begins this lesson by asking for the rider to keep the spine of the horse straight. When she falls onto the outside shoulder, Debbie cautions her against over bending to the inside and popping onto the outside shoulder. They use a little counter flexion to help with the straightness. They use the leg yield from the wall, making sure to keep the hips and shoulders in alignment. Once the leg yield is straight they go to the half pass.
