Courtney King Dye instructs a training session focusing on correct contact, responsiveness to the aids, and precision in our expectations.
Courtney King Dye joins DTO with an eighteen year old Dutch Warmblood who is working at the upper levels. Her assistant trainer rides him, and the lesson plan is to work on his bracing against the bit and accepting the contact, suppleness, and asking for movements in unusual places in the ring. Courtney gives a great explanation of her training methods. They begin with transitions between the extended and collected walk.
