Preparation for Lead Departures
5.55 minutes – In this video John explains the different elements of a lead departure. He talks about how he elevates the horses inside shoulder by taking it out of the circle away from his leg. Then his outside leg moves back a little and he moves the horse sideways into the circle so their weight is going in the direction of the lead departure. This exercise will be the preparation to teach the canter departure.
