I'm hoping to do some dressage with my boy Shea in the future, however he only knows the basics - walk, trot, canter etc. his previous owner was just starting to teach him more complicated stuff before I got him, but they got to busy with work, and had to stop working with him and later sell him.
Generally when I ride i've been working on upward and downward transitions, lateral flexion and just building up his fitness.
What are some exercises or simple things I can train him to do to start off? He knows how to collect, however I don't (well in theory but not in practise) and so want to wait until i'm under intruction to do that with him.
I was thinking I would start him off with something like leg yeilding (and you'll have to excuse my ignorance ) so how would I go about teaching him how to do that?
