Shoul­der-in

Dressage Today - - Clinic -

Shoul­der-in is per­formed in col­lected trot. The horse is rid­den with a slight but uni­form bend around the inside leg of the rider, main­tain­ing ca­dence at a con­stant an­gle of ap­prox­i­mately 30 de­grees. The horse’s inside fore­leg passes and crosses in front of the out­side fore­leg; the inside hind leg steps for­ward un­der the horse’s body weight fol­low­ing the same track of the out­side fore­leg with the low­er­ing of the inside hip. The horse is bent away from the di­rec­tion in which it is mov­ing.”
