Video Description

Isabell Werth leads a session with an eight year old Hanovarian mare who shows further development towards Grand Prix. She shows more self carriage than the previous two, and Isabell points out that they need to work to lower the croup. She asks that they move fluently in the trot half pass keeping the flexion. When they go to the canter they show more collection than the first two. In the canter half pass Isabell requests a longer stride and they move on to the tempi changes, starting with the fours. After a diagonal of threes and then twos, Isabell encourages her to try the ones. As she is new to this, they mare only does two steps of the ones at once, helping her build her confidence. Isabell has her demonstrate a pirouette before showing piaffe and passage.She guides her to step quicker in the passage, adding half pass in shoulder in to prepare her for the piaffe. When doing the transition from passage to trot, Isabell reminds her to slowly make the transition, allowing the mare to find the rhythm.
