We hear so much about transitions and why it’s so important to ride them. A good, balanced transition should be smooth and look like one fluid movement. To achieve this, your horse needs to move with an unrestricted neck, without rushing, and without being dependent on a strong contact from your hands.
Why ride it?
Riding correct transitions will help to teach your horse to be more on your aids. It also encourages your horse to step through with his hindlegs, helping him to lift his forehand, resulting in a better rhythm and improved balance.
