In this episode I will tell you what the purpose is of riding exercises. I will show you how to teach a horse lateral movement and then we show you how to ride these lateral movements with different horses. The goal? The transitions within the paces should be fluent while maintaining the rhythm and with a light and consistent contact. We're going to teach a young horse to rein-back. Before you can rein-back, you have to be able to halt in a relaxed manner.
