On the second day of this clinic, this horse and rider start with a better trot than the day before. He tests his rider in the corner, and Debbie coaches them through his shying with grace. They incorporate leg yields into the warm up, remembering to think medium trot and forward. After a walk break they work in the canter with a shoulder fore on the long side, keeping his neck straight. The counter canter and flying change work reaps the benefits of keeping him straight.
