Video Description

As this pair warms up Lars Petersen encourages them to do tempo changes within the movements and lower the neck a bit to get him more through the back. He helps her get more give and throughness while keeping the tempo. The first exercise, which he advises for horses at all levels, is to go from shoulder in to renvers, asking the horse to be responsive and soft. He has her use the short ends to prepare and voltes if she isn’t getting the flexion and bend. They work on getting contact on either rein while going either direction.
