Video Description

We join Lars Petersen as he helps this first pair warm up in the trot. He encourages her to create more push from behind and swing through the body. He has her rider forward first in the canter, and cautions her against leaning back too far and too long when asking the horse to lighten the front end. They ride a medium canter down the long side and come back to a working canter without using the reins. When they ride transitions within the canter Lars has her experiment to see how little aids she can use to achieve the transitions.
