Juan Manuel Munoz Diaz introduces the two horses that will be used in this session, startin with a six year old who is just beginning piaffe. They begin with the medium walk to the collected walk. He makes sure the horse is not afraid of the whip, and they work to find where it is most effective. They reward the horse for trying and keep him calm. Juan touches with the ship to ask the horse to lift his leg higher in the walk. He emphasizes that everything come from relaxation. He only asks for a few steps and allows him to walk forward if he shows tension.
