Dressage Movements-First Level Dressage Tests Counter Canter

Check out this horse doing one of the dressage movements required in First Level Tests–a balanced and straight counter canter. You can see the straightness because his shoulders lie softly between the two reins (not leaning to the left), and his shoulders are directly in front of his rider’s hips.

It’s on my new Facebook page called Solve Horseback Riding Fears at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Berlin-Vermont/Solve-Horseback-Riding-Fears/149140361379

The Facebook page started out as a resource to help riders deal with fear, but it’s expanded into much more.

I have all sorts of videos and articles on all sorts of dressage movements like this counter canter clip as well as stuff from all the dressage tests including First Level as shown here.
