Introducing the Haunches-In with Jim Hicks


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 29

Introducing dressage movements to your horse can feel intimidating. Jim Hicks demonstrates how you can prepare your horse for a haunches in and put this useful movement to work for your horse in a slow relaxed way. He covers basic mechanics of what he is doing with his aids, what he would like working before he would introduce this movement and also the feel and timing of what he is doing to complement the mechanics.
