Very cute Mike. Not to be picky but I find him more of a "trick" pony than really classical. Back in the late 60's or early 70's Karl Mikola had a shetland trained to do "airs", cabriole, levade, etc.. Anyone else remember Friars Gate Farm in MA or am I really that ancient?

So, leg/seat are not required for lateral movements at all? Just position with the reins and cue forward?

For training lateral movements on the ground, you would use a whip for your "leg aids". Most everything done on their back can be taught on the ground. I didnt always believe that, but then started driving and got into the Clay Maier DVD series and there's a lot you can do by never setting foot in the stirrup!

What a cute pony! Loved watching the lateral work. Very cool.

This one and the related videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFQ_NjGr4tA&feature=related)by Sara Silverfberg are my personal favourites....
Great for deflating over-important warmblood boarders ....:D
