Laura Graves helps a temperamental mare work through her tension using body positioning in many movements.  The total running time of this three part video is 37:15.

Video Description

Laura starts with this upper level pair by letting them warm up as they normally would. The mare shows some tension, and Laura encourages the rider to allow her to sneeze as she trots and dissipate some of that tension in her back.
