Counter flexion, Rider Position, Changes, Half Pass with Shannon Peters

This mare warms up beautifully, and Ms. Peters asks for the rider to be particular in her expectations. In the canter, they check for flexion in both directions and the ability to move the shoulders. She works with the rider to achieve heavy elbows and relaxed shoulders. Ms. Peters gives a great explanation of the importance of the outside rein. They do the half pass across the long diagonal with a couple of counter flexions, resulting in a better frame.
