Step 4 Episodes: Direct Rein Pressure (Position 3) for Lateral Movement of Hind Legs on the Ground (Disengage Hindquarters)

Share this page!


In Step 4 we are looking to control the hind feet from the ground by using rein position 3 in the snaffle bit. We want the horse to respond to the light rein pressure and angle to soften his face, slow the front feet, and move the hind feet laterally. This is the foundation of lateral bend, and disengaging the hindquarters in the saddle, (Step 9).
