Hi, I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village
I’m going to show you some tips and techniques that I use when using transitions in the western
style riding. Another example of a session of transition you can do is break back down
from the lope. So if you have your horse move up to the lope, to break your horse down to
a jog, break down to the jog to the walk and break back down from the walk to the halt.
So again we are going to go back to our lope, we are going to start in our lope. Break down
to our jog, break down to our walk and we are going to break down to our halt. So you
can do any combination of these types of transitions. You can go from your halt or from your lope
to your jog, back to your lope, to your halt, to your lope, to your halt, to your jog, back
to your lope, back to your halt, and these just get your horse better tuned into you.
Better listening. It gets it thinking about what it is doing and also to what is continuing
going on around in the circle. You are actually training yo8ur horse to do something to be
more responsive, to properaly take there correct gate, to go into the gate with full movement
and be more comfortable in balance. So that is just another example of a session of a
transitions that you work on with your horse.
