Level 3 Course Description

Level 3 – Mounted Introduction to the Seat, Leg and Rein Aids

Building on what our horse learned in Level 2, we now introduce what I call the natural aids in word form. Here we introduce the seat, leg and rein aids – one at a time – so in Level 4, we can combine them into sentence form as we ask for more advanced shapes from our horse.
