    How to Stop Your Horse’s Quarters From Coming in During Canter

    How to Stop Your Horse From Anticipating

    In a dressage test, anticipation can cost you a lot of marks. Although the judge wants your horse to be obedient and responsive, she doesn’t want to see the horse second-guessing his rider.

    How to Stop Your Horse Fidgeting in Halt

    There is at least one halt in all dressage tests, and in some, there can be as many as three. So, it’s essential that you can ride a square, straight halt and that your horse stands still.

    In this episode, we're going to look at why horses fidget and how you can stop it.
