Video Description

We join Courtney King-Dye and this rider in their warm up. They first work on the canter pirouettes, and Courtney points out that he needs to carry more on the hind end, allowing for a longer stride. They ask for collection on the circle, and then let it out stride by stride. They invite him to stretch and Courtney explains how the stretch she gets is appropriate for this horse at this stage in his training. She helps them in the walk to take a bigger step with the inside hind when he steps short on that leg.
