Stand like an 'archer' and transition from 'Shoulder-In' to 'Renvers'.
'Shoulder-In' to 'Renvers' on a circle might sound really complicated, but if you have a good set up in 'Shoulder-In' and really get your horse’s inside hind leg forward and under, the moment you go into counter curve you’ll see a lovely swing in the hind legs. And this is really what it’s all about. In this lesson Jenku works with Jack on the next step in developing your horses lateral work in hand. Starting with an 'Archer’s Stance' in Shoulder-In, when you feel your giving you a nice connection, 'tsk' and reward.
The next step is helping your horse shape his neck because, when the neck is lifted, the balance shifts to the hind quarter. From a good Shoulder-In, pull down lightly on the whip hand as the inside hind leg touches the ground and ask for the slightest counter curve. Reward the 'smallest try' and then go again. Be careful not to keep the pressure on for too long, as this can make your horse claustrophobic and his behaviour and movement will deteriorate instead of improving.
