Training Buzz: Focus on Basics with an Upper-Level Horse

On this week’s Training Buzz, international Grand Prix rider and trainer Chrissa Hoffmann helps a rider with an upper-level horse. The horse previously tended to get behind the vertical. He knew the upper-level movements but had nervous energy and was lacking some basics of balance and rhythm. They focus on getting him to relax, which helps him improve his gaits, balance and suppleness.
