Cesar Torrente helps this five year old establish push from behind and balance in the down transitions. The total running time of this video is 27:00
This rider and five year old begin in the walk, striving for relaxation while stretching to the bit. In the trot they ask for a forward, active trot, being soft with the inside hand, and creating a flowing, lovely trot. They make sure he is not leaning on the hands, and then do trot walk trot transitions with only a few steps of walk in between the trots. They concentrate on being soft with the reins and using the leg aids for the down transitions. When they first ask for a lengthening of the trot they get a few steps of canter that is gently corrected. Cesar then asks for transitions within the trot, and the horse shows a lovely shape through his neck.
