I invite you to step up to our window. No film editing. No music. Just my horse and me surrounded by sounds of the farm.
After each circle, we ride shoulder-in down the long side. We come back to repeat this a couple times in each direction. It is easier to see his body position when he is moving away from the camera. The last couple times down the long side, we ride straight ahead, which will show you the difference in body position as compared to shoulder-in. The half circles are followed by half-pass to the fence. My objective was to direct him with my bellybutton as much as possible and ask him to maintain his impulsion and tempo throughout the exercises.
My favorite part of the video?

Love you, Boy.
