Laura Graves teaches this lesson on her first dressage horse, Sunny, who is now a 21 year old quarter horse schoolmaster. He is often behind the leg, but uses his training up to fourth level such as the flying changes, against the rider. Itâ€™s a great opportunity to see a horse who wasnâ€™t bred for dressage and how far he can go. They begin with the stretchy trot, making sure heâ€™s in front of the leg. They work on straightness with him, checking him laterally and forward and back. The counter flexion helps when going to the left. After the warm up, they first check that he is responsive off the leg in the walk, and making sure that he keeps the power in his hind end when they collect him. They do lots of transitions to check his responsiveness.
