Catherine Haddad rides Hotmail, her Grand Prix partner. The total running time of this four part video is 49:45.
Catherine rides her current Grand Prix horse, showing us a daily workout. She works on the basics, making sure he is responsive to the lightest aid. She stresses this is necessary in all riding. Catherine talks about the weight aids and how they are used through the levels. They work on making sure there is an even contact in the rein, that the horse is straight, forward, and connected to the bit. As she checks the single changes, she makes sure they are dead straight and even in volume. By riding down the quarter line she can tell if he deviates to one side or the other in the change.
