Friday Video from SmartPak: Make the Best of Banks with Cathy Wieschhoff

If you’re producing a young horse with the hope of making a successful eventer down the line, you’ve likely felt the pressure of getting it all ‘right’ when training for cross-country. It’s all about those fine lines, after all — and the fine line of building communication and partnership without dampening his innate fifth leg, that inbuilt ability to self-preserve, is probably at the forefront of your mind.

This super instructional clip from Cathy Wieschhoff will give you some great ideas for beginning your youngster’s training in a way that helps him figure it out for himself safely and successfully — and all you need is a lunge line and a bank to play with. Happy training!
