Small Movements to Help Your Horse Build Strength

As the pair moves into canter, Olivia helps the rider and young mare work on small forward and back transitions where the forward generates energy, and the back helps compress her and load the outside hind leg. Small movements help build the strength slowly as these moments are deceptively difficult. Performing counter canter will also help the horse rock back on the outside, but it is important to note that the horse can’t just go lower and faster.
