Stretching the neck down

REF HA28, flat work, Stretching the neck down

In this session, Teoline has to stretch her horse’s neck down especially before and after a ground pole.

This position allows a better energy flow along the horse’s spine which improves his pushing strength.

Teoline works her horse on a circle and makes use of the bend to stretch her horse’s neck down up to the nose. She has to be aware of her own looseness and especially be ready to release her arms as soon as her horse starts to move his neck down. Yet, she still has to maintain a steady rhythm and a precise track.
