GO­ING IN CIR­CLES

“Now let’s change this up a lit­tle,” says Ben. “I want the horse to move all the way around me in a full cir­cle. His hindlegs move in a big arc, step­ping over as he goes. His head stays with me in the mid­dle of the cir­cle and his front legs don’t travel very far.” Dur­ing this ex­er­cise, re­sist the temp­ta­tion to move too far your­self — your horse needs to do the mov­ing, while you con­trol his speed and di­rec­tion. The whip, used gen­tly on his in­side hind again, is the sig­nal for your horse to move.
