About this video

Beans is an 11 year old home bred who is moving up to Grand Prix shortly. Though he is progressed in his canter changes, Hannah shows her method of teaching flying changes right from the start and then demonstrates her system for developing tempi changes. Straightness is an prerequisite, as is being soft and on the aids. So half halts and simple changes are part of her warm-up. Hannah uses anticipation to teach a single change which is as useful for jumping as it is for dressage. She then shows how to build up sequence changes which take time and require a logical progression to become truly established.


dutch horse 18 Sep 2009 Just a lovely picture! Hannah made excellent points and rode what she spoke. Thanks again Horse Hero, and best of luck to Hannah and Beans!
rush60 18 Sep 2009 Great information.
st louis 18 Sep 2009 Maybe I am clueless because I live on "the other side" of the pond here in the states but I can't figure out what type of material is in the arena on which she is riding. At first, I thought it was just extra wet dirt or mud but then it looked like some sort of carpet material. The horse goes so nicely in it I'd like to know what it is. Thanks!
st louis 18 Sep 2009 Great exercises for training.I am really wondering about the footing. What is it?
SVMel 18 Sep 2009 Brilliant!! Clear straight forward guide to what can be a difficult movement to master. Many thanks to Hannah, Beans and the horse hero team!
