Nicholas continues to help the rider ask her horse to be longer in the neck so he tracks up more with connection. This requires her to continuously read her horse and respond and reward the horse. In the reaching frame he has her ride a three loop serpentine while she thinks about the connection on her left rein. As they go to the sitting trot, Nicholas explains that the best forward driving aid is a following seat. The rider works on establishing a boundary with the left rein, and his trot improves. They repeat the three loop serpentine in a sitting trot.
After a walk break they go to the canter with a walk canter transition. His left canter is better than his right, and Nicholas asks the rider to evaluate why that is. They perform a one loop serpentine and eventually ask for counter canter. The horse shows good straightness even in the counter canter.
