Riding a Forward Tempo (Part 2)

Top international Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer Shannon Dueck helps a rider work on riding a forward tempo with particular focus on her arm and hand position.

In the second part of this two-part series, Shannon and the rider work on right lead canter, again focusing on immediately going forward and not worrying about the horse being on the bit. They work on rider position in both canter and trot to help with the horse’s suppleness. Shannon emphasizes the rider’s arm and hand position, explaining that the shoulder is as important as the elbow, wrist and fingers.
