Video Description

Lars Petersen greets this rider and finds her partner is a Mustang mare! They show him their usual warm up, and he asks that in the warm up she asks her to be lower in the neck from the withers and reaching forward when she softens the reins. They establish a better response from the leg so that she doesn’t need to nag to keep her going. As they canter Lars asks which rein she is heaviest in and helps her find a more even contact. Going left they look for a bit more bend and he helps her push her more out onto the outside rein. They next ride some leg yields.
