Click ‘n Learn: One-Tempi Flying Changes

Learn the building blocks that teach your horse one-tempi flying changes.

Here is a sequence of photos of five one-tempi flying changes. Notice the brief moment between canter leads when the rider tactfully asks for the new lead while keeping the horse’s body absolutely straight. As a result, the expression and impulsion in the canter does not fade as he progresses through the movement. When a horse changes his canter lead at every stride, it is often the visual highlight of a Grand Prix dressage test.
