In our latest video in the series from Felicitas von Neumann-Cosel, Felicitas works with a rider on balancing the inside and outside aids to influence the horse’s line of travel and tempo for training level. She uses jumping visuals to help with frequent trot canter transitions. She has the rider imagine balancing back before a jump to transition to canter and then come back like the rider was going to go through trot poles after cantering. This helps the horse balance and be more prepared rather than getting anxious and rushing into the transition. There is noticeable improvement throughout the ride.
