Video Description

Catherine Haddad holds an open training day at Fair Sky Farm in White Fences near Wellington and begins the sessions with a 3 1/2 year old youngster. She presents her training system and describes how she picks the horses she imports from Europe. Catherine explains that she first teaches straightness and forwardness in her horses, riding them into a contact. With this young mare they ride rather overbent because of some nervousness from the day before. They show that the horse is kept in front of the leg to the bit, taking the energy from the hindquarters into the contact. In the canter she shows a beautiful bascule, showing how over the back she goes. The rider offers more length of rain, letting her stretch more while the mare still seeks the connection. Catherine describes how the rider takes the mare into a higher frame.
