Video Description

This pair is new to dressage, and they are working on creating a good connection and balance. This is a good refresher on having quiet, soft hands, riding with a good rhythm, and using your corners. After a warm up at the walk and trot they ride a 3 loop serpentine and then work on a 20 meter circle with bend. When they do the serpentine in the other direction Cesar helps them ride each part with the correct flexion and bend. He helps this pair ride accurate 20, 15 and 10 meter circles at the canter without losing energy.
