The Spiraling sTEp

In this video set, we will explore the exercise of spiraling our horse out towards bigger circles while maintaining balance, bend, and a soft round shape. Then being able to move these circles around the arena in walk, trot, and canter. This process creates more mental and physical self-carriage.
