So where does it Begin?
As we go through the variations and possibilities of the demi-diagonals and the shoulder-in, we are asked but where does it all begin?
Watching the horse effortlessly switch from bend to bend with the rider riding on the buckle, seeing the ease, the softness of the body of the horse, it almost seems too easy. But how to get here from nowhere.
Too often we see a shoulder-in that is all about tension, hold, restriction, the perfect placement a place we hold the horse into.
Instead here we have video of the horse, moving along freely, with no restraint, with a beautiful bend, freely engaging in the trot shoulder-in as the rider completely releases the reins.This issue we cover how to turn the demi-diagonals into ribboning, next issue we will look at where we can go from here and talk a little about the beginnings, where it all began.
