I had a lot of fun teaching in Liege in a private stable. This is a very nice 6 years old mare with a beautiful mouth owned by a talented young rider. She is in a riding school and preparing to pass her exams with her. Here I explain how to have the horse give in and relax into your hands. Normally hands should never move unless there is a specific purpose. Her rider had the bad habit of moving her hands in order to have the head down. If you push the hind legs at the trot outside for a couple of strides when the inside hind is in the air the horse gives in. You must post on the wrong diagonal for a couple of strides while you push the hindquarters and you will feel the result in your hand. I also verify the connection from behind to front and advance my hands and the horse doesn’t change shape.
