A Freisian’s Journey on the Path I (2)

In this next clip, the Freisian starts off along the rail braced in the left hind as before. Still, he moves rather nicely off the rail when I ask him to yield the left hind. From then on, as long as you see him move in a circle around me, rather than straight away, he continues to yield and be soft in the left hind. I then move toward working on the inside shoulder, for a soft outward-going turn, which positions me to work on the right hindquarter which he also yields very nicely. Soon he is soft and focussed in his work– and gets good praise and a deserved break.
