Jan Bemelmans helps two horses with accepting the aids and relaxing and releasing tension. Stretch the back and elongating the neck for relaxation and suppleness are shown.
Jan Bemelmans works with Pierre on his second horse. They have been warming up while Jan watches before our session begins. Jan emphasizes that the rider needs to keep his leg on and keep the contact. The mare is not accepting of the leg, and they work on a small canter on a circle. He then has them come to the walk and do a shoulder in on the small circle. The horse has to become calm to the leg and accepting in all the gaits. Jan explains why the horse and rider must become a team to be successful.
