Second Level Dressage


The movements in Second Level are designed to show that the horse accepts more weight on the hindquarters, moves with an uphill carriage and remains steadily on the bit. In this topic, Debbie McDonald and her student, 2012 London Olympian Adrienne Lyle, take a special young horse (Brentina’s half-sister) through exercises appropriate for a horse at this level and practice riding parts of a Second Level Test.

Running Time: 19 minutes and 7 seconds
