In Volume III, Herr Zettl presents firsthand the theory and practice of third and fourth level collection movements. Half-pass, introduction to flying changes and tempi changes are covered. Slow motion close-ups and detailed descriptions of movements with accompanying graphics allow viewers to grasp each exercise and how it should be ridden.
