Video Description

The second day of the convention begins with a session where Carl Hester and Richard Davison each help a rider they have never worked with before. Each rider had won the opportunity to ride through a contest with Horse and Rider magazine. Carl begins by explaining how he works with new riders by first watching as he warms up, noticing his beautiful, light trot, and asking for more jump in the canter. Richard notes that the horse is capable of 8s on all the movements, but is dealing with some spookiness. He is specific about which hand to reward him with while working through these issues. Carl then starts to work on canter walk transitions that show some sitting. In the canter he has her do several transitions within the canter on the circle, adding lift to the back leg.
