This is an excerpt from “The Fundamentals of Flatwork: Basic” which is part of Bernie Traurig’s American Hunter Jumper Forward Riding System. In this chapter Bernie goes over how to ask a green or young horse to pick up the canter.
“The Fundamentals of Flatwork: Basic” is the first of a 3 part series outlining a simple, progressive method of flatwork for all jumping disciplines. “Basic” focuses on the training of a young or inexperienced horse with the aim to achieve obedience to light rein and leg aids, and assumes the rider is familiar with the proper techniques of riding and jumping. But you do not have to be a highly experienced or seasoned rider because Bernie’s strategies are clear, straight-forward, classic and timeless. The Basic level highlights his favorite exercises that can be incorporated into anyone’s training program.
