In this first session, Ali introduces Gabby and Beanie. We start by looking at Gabby's basic alignment in walk and trot and observe their starting points. We move on to establish straightness in both Gabby and Beanie and then challenge them with 'little and big trot' to further improve Beanie's balance and rhythm. We finish the session with a look at canter which is still very much a work in progress for both horse and rider. It's a great demo of how a disorganised horse can cause the rider to become disorganised and how by organising the rider we help the horse find its balance and become more organised.
