Video Description

Courtney King-Dye teaches Corrine on Shanghai, a six year old showing at Third Level. They demonstrate their warm up, stretching low in the first few minutes. He has had an issue with rearing, and Courtney talks about how they have been dealing with it. Corrine has worked with Kenny Harlow (watch his videos on our website) to push through his naughtiness. As he settles they challenge him more by spiraling in at the canter while remaining active behind. They take a walk break and when she picks him back up they make sure he is walking with his hindquarters carrying before they ask for the walk canter transition. In the canter they ask him to go bigger while still pushing from behind, working transitions within the canter on the circle. They next try for 3 single changes on the long side, but change the plan when he shows tension.
