Riding a Forward Tempo (Part 1)

Top international Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer Shannon Dueck helps a rider establish and ride a forward tempo.

In the first part of this two-part series, Shannon helps a rider focus on establishing a consistent forward tempo with her mare. She explains that the tempo and the hind leg are important before trying to have the horse on the bit. They also canter right away to help establish the forward feeling. Once the mare is forward, they can focus on getting her to soften and Shannon demonstrates how the hands and arms help create the suppleness.
