Video Description

Nancy brings us a lesson that concentrates on balance and neck control. She gives a great explanation of what the pressure should feel like in the reins and why. When the rider doesn't like the feel in the neck , Nancy suggests to fix it with their posture, not the reins. In the walk she makes sure the hind legs are stepping to the bit using her hips and legs. She checked that she is independently balanced from him, and he from her. As she canters she makes sure she sits still and fixes any problems in the neck by asking him to be more responsible with the haunches.
