Hello,

I used to come to this forum after leaving the NHE forum. I haven't come for a while because i have opened a natural horse school in France, and it take me a lot of my time. I still have my horse Romantic which is now 8 years old. I have got a new horse, a Palomino Stallion called Utah. He is 5 years old.
I still practise of course Natural dressage with them.
One of my friend came to make a movie from my 2 horses, I wanted to show you it. What do you think about this video?
What can I improve or change?

I love your riding style and how invisible yuor leg cues are - your transitions from trot to canter are almost invisible - I'm very jealous!
I also really like the fact that even though you do play the wild games, there is a softness to it that gives me the feeling that you're really in tune and safe in doing so.

The only thing I can think of as something to work on, might be the trot of the gorgeous stallion, because that still looks quite short and a bit stiff. The jambette, Spanish walk and lifting the leg onto a high pedestal can loosen his shoulders, and sideways movement will do the same and strengthen his hindquarters so that he will be able to flex his body better (and therefore also move the shoulders and frontlegs better).
