If you are looking to improve your horse’s performance in any type of activity, developing well balanced transitions is a great place to start. Transitions are more than just the moment between on gait and the next. The establish the rhythm, balance, and impulsion of the following gait.
Based on a long figure 8 pattern, this simple lesson plan will help you improve your horse’s transitions step by step. Once you know this lesson plan, you can use the pattern to focus on other types of work.
**Please note; This lesson plan was previously titled “Transitions Lesson Plan 1”, but I didn’t like that title. It is the same lesson plan, so if you already have that one, don’t buy this one. Go ride or drive the lesson plan you already have!
