Prepare to Pirouette

Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer, Shannon Dueck, shares that the key to training canter pirouettes is progressively developing collection, bend and suppleness. Plus, Greg Staller, DVM, explains the causes of thrush as well as how to treat and prevent it.

In this issue:

  • Dueck provides step-by-step exercises to test your horse’s collection and suppleness, which will result in the final product—a fluid 360-degree turn in canter.
  • Staller reviews the anatomy of the equine hoof to help you understand how thrush happens.
