    Includes the backward canter, all the airs above ground, and utilization of the training.

    I don't care if you've posted it before, Mike. This is the first time I've seen it.

    Thank you.

    Would love to ride a horse classically trained like that.

    Watching horses move like that helps give me perspective of what the horse's body is doing, for example, in a buck. It helps me get out of my own head when I'm riding that action and helps me understand the movement wasn't as big as it felt in my head.


    I guess I'm understanding the importance of learning equine kinesiology.

    I love all your videos.

    The backwards canter reminds me of my new pony's bucking style. He'd be good at that move .

    I am hoping to keep new pony;s bucking style in the paddock and not under my seat .

    *Correct dressage embodies all of the horse's natural movements* ... have heard that many times, and just now am thinking about the *backing up buck* as a dressage movement.

    No, honest, not pulling your leg, but I can't get the search link to copy. Nevermind, doesn't matter, was just trying to confirm what petstorejunkie said because she posted on the thread.

    I did not see it either. Very interesting. Thanks for reposting if that is what happened because otherwise I would not have found it.

    I have not seen this before, enjoyed it. Years and years ago (early 70s) the instructor I had when I lived in Spain was French and had trained at the Cadre Noir. The stallion he owned would do many of these movements ... used to love watching him 'work a square' on the horse ... at a canter.

    The backwards canter isn't really a canter, is it? What is it?

    Yeah, I posted it. June of this year. I can't believe Mike hadn't already posted it. Don't tell me you have a life now, Mike!

    It is a backward mezair. Not canter.

    I think my mare has the terre-a-terre down pat...not that I'm asking for it (or even know how to ask for it). We typically do it when collecting and asking for a down transition...sometimes we just end up cantering in place.

    Thanks, Mike...and CFFarm!
