He also demonstrates and discusses the principles of in hand work with a young advance horse learning piaffe. Throughout Conrad makes reference to the scales of training and the importance of the development of the correct feel for the rider. Conrad’s number one goal is to try to improve the riders, believing that the horse then becomes better by itself. His philosophy is that you need a correct seat. From a correct seat you can develop correct feel and from that you can develop correct aids. Running time approx: 85 minutes.Learn More
