With this exercise, you’ll learn how to transfer the action from the hind feet to the front feet. It should look like a dance with your horse. This exercise will help strengthen your horse's hind and front quarters.
Buck teaches a group of riders how to do outside turns. He tells them how to set their horses up to begin and how to finish it successfully.
