Great lesson on the basics and how to get the horse lighter in the contact.

Video Description

This pair works on developing proper contact and control. The horse likes to pull on the rein and get a bit heavy in the hand, Debbie asks the rider to go forward and steady into the outside rein when this happens. She also shows the rider how to control the outside shoulder and fix the contact evasion by using a little counter flexion in the moment.
