Philippe Karl’s longe lesson over jumps

I had just bought yesterday his book for long reins !

What I love most about this video is that the horse has no tack nor any sort of gear at all ! Only a cavesson. There is no contact with the mouth of the horse. That means the work is done only on trust, inner communication, voice, respect etc…

This exercise will be a bit more difficult though with a hot and very dominant mare like mine. They will have tendency to explose after the jump, you would need more time to come to the neutral position to take the pressure out and restart again. The reason this exercise is great especially for these kind of horses is that it will oblige the dominant horse to be submissive and yield MENTALLY !!!
