    Lots of half halts, changes both between gaits and within gaits.

    Hi - the horse needs to be 'through from behind' first. IRide to some audio downloads that you ride to that teach you what to feel for, there is one called something like 'making the right connection' and another called 'simple steps to long and low' which I get my clients to ride to when they are not in lessons, these are good for getting the basics right if you don't have a trainer on hand all of the time. They come up on google if you type in iRidetraining and they are really cheap. Having a good trainer help you from the floor is the best bet if you can afford it though, and it somethimes helps to have someone experienced sit on the horse to show him the way if you are not sure yourself?
