Forward Riding Series Part 7 - The Three Speeds of the Trot


Part 7 of Susan Deal's "Forward Riding Series - Exercises for a Rider's First Year"

In this video topic, the 7th in Susan Deal's series for teaching beginners, a young rider and her pony experiment with different speeds of the trot. Once a new rider is able maintain the same trot around the ring, you can introduce a stronger trot and shorter trot and then add rails on the ground. This allows the rider to feel the difference in the pony's trot pace and how the stride length is affected. This lesson is the beginning stage of the rider's influence over the horse's gaits.

Running Time: 4 minutes and 57 seconds
