Practicing Transitions for Training Level Test 3

Top international Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer Shannon Dueck helps a rider prepare to show Training Level Test 3, working specifically on transitions.

In the second part of the three-part series, Shannon helps the rider find her inner stability and ask for suppleness in walk/trot transitions. It is important that the rider’s elbow be stronger than her hand. They then move on to trot/canter transitions. When horse or rider starts to get tired and fussy, it’s important not to just quit. Make it good first and then take a break.
