Hooking onto a Small Circle at the Trot with Teo
7.20 minutes – In this video John talks through how he hooks Teo onto a small circle at a jog. He explains that this is a mental concentration exercise for the horse. He wants Teo to learn to think left when he is doing a left circle. Once Teo chooses to stay and hunt the circle his inside ear goes into the circle, his rhythm slows down and he relaxes. Every time Teo hunts the circle John stops and rewards him for thinking in that direction.
