Felicitas: Improving the canter and the transitions...

The final Felicitas installment! Some of you will appreciate FVNC's remark on wearing a helmet at the start of the video. She spoke at length about this and I only caught  the tail end of her commentary. Most of the riders did NOT wear a helmet, not sure why FVNC only mentioned it to one rider except that Ri's trainer rides a lot of young horses. Anyhoo, this session is part of a longer mostly of canter and transitions into and from the canter.


  1. "I was told brain injury is not fun."

    The more I watch, the more I love and love her style.

  2. Thank you for including the trainer's dialogue in the video. These videos are great tools.

    What did she tell your rider to do with her outside rein to keep the rhythm in canter? Thanks.

  3. I sincerely hope that the day will come when not wearing a helmet is seen as unprofessional.

  4. I agree. I always wear a helmet and make it a point to discuss the recent Cortney King-Dye accident when I'm putting one on, even, god forbid, for a simple western trail ride!!

  5. Great blog! I've read a few posts here today, and wanted to leave at least one comment. I'll be back!
