Practice homework

Our current training goals are: – lightness – softness in the aids – suppleness and lightness in changes – suppleness and lightness in transitions.
Part of the homework from Christofer Dahlgren is transitions into walking backwards in lightness in preparation for the halt from the haunches (transition from movement into schoolhalt).
A little out of our comfort zone because we’re trying work without the whip aids for the first time in…years?

Training the day before with whip aids:

The backing up is to train Jamie to keep thinking backwards in the walk after and to prepare him for transitions to halt with enganged hind quarters.
It is a good tool for working on suppleness, flexibillity and the lowering of the haunches
