Video Description

Laura watches this pair warm up and suggests that the rider occasionally give in the rein because they have had issues with being heavy. In the canter they work on keeping her straight on the left rein, pointing out that she must become independent of the bend and not rely on it to keep the canter. The rider has expressed concern with the walk canter transitions, and Laura has her first work on transitions within the walk. They do a 10 meter walk circle and ask for the up transition to canter when they are facing the wall. They next ride the leg yields at the canter.
