Video Description

Chrissa Hoffman rides Faustus, a third level horse that she is helping with the changes. She discovered the issues that led to his flying change problems, and has just gotten him to the point of beginning to work on the tempis. She begins by placing him deep in the neck during the warmup to keep him from taking over. She focuses on keeping him from grabbing the right rein, and that he stays connected when she gives, as well as working on the bending and suppleness. She checks through the gears in the canter once he warms up, adding a few playful single changes. When he becomes tight on the right rein, she demonstrates how she handles this common problem, and then talks about where they are in the training with the changes.
