Carl Hester & Richard Davison, Part 2
Next, Carl works with a 9-year-old, ridden by Katherine Bateson-Chandler, a top American dressage rider. They begin by riding a couple of steps of leg yield, then straight, then leg yield while keeping the horse's head in front of the chest. He gives great tips on how to make accurate turns onto the centerline. While riding the half pass at the canter they change the collection and they also work on the canter pirouette. With Carl's guidance Katherine is able to get great quality steps. They begin with the working pirouette and work up to a pirouette on the centerline.
