Bella Lesson 8 Video

Update on our Riding skills. These patterns used with my focus/energy/weight/leg cues will encourage Bella to turn with those cues and I’ll be using my reins less and less.

  1. Corners. This is the updated version of P2Ps, now without the obstacle we focus on the corners and use them for a breath halt and trying not to use the reins unless needed.
  2. X-Box. Using the centre as X where things change….direction, gait, pattern.
  3. Clover Leaf. Straight lines and curves again using X as the centre to halt after the rotations of the leaf pattern thereby building more walk and trot and less halt.
