Welcome to month one of our Training Academy. Take a look at Jay and Spencer's videos below...
In the first installment of the 2012 Training Academy Jay demonstrated how to stretch your legs while riding to improve your position and how to use transitions to get your horse working evenly between your hands and soft through his outline – see how he does it in this video.
Bonus scene - In the bonus scene see how Jay uses simple canter poles to develop the canter.
In this video see Spencer put his exercises into action as he demonstrates how to check for straightness and forwardness plus what each of the three outlines; ‘test’, ‘long and low’ plus ‘low and round’ should look like.
