The Shoulder-in sTEp

In this video set, we will dive into the shoulder-in and all the variations of this exercise i.e. counter-shoulder-in and different lines of travel. We will play with a single line, with the reins and curb, and without any reins, to feel the benefits of groundwork, work in hand, and liberty.
