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.
- 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.
- X-Box. Using the centre as X where things change….direction, gait, pattern.
- 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.
