Level 3


Do you dream of having a 'go anywhere' 'do anything' horse? Of having excellent seat connection where you can ask transitions and turn without needing your reins? Of being fun and provocative for your horse while progressing his training?


 In level 3 we explore impulsion; meaning mental, emotional and physical collection. Build and test this using longer lines, playing at liberty and riding on a loose rein. Allowing the horse to learn and keep their responsibilities and us to improve our feel, timing and balance. Learn to be more provocative and fun as you train your horse, adding more tasks and making learning more and more of a game. All of this results in a stronger connection, more trusting partnership and a lighter and more responsive horse.
