Ask Cedric Triolet : Have you ever had a really backwards youngster, if so do you have any tips ? Anything would be appreciated

Hello Maddie,

Yes I did and what helped a lot was to work a lot on walk and trot to extend their movement, a lot of forward walk without letting them trot and same at trot without letting canter, making them opening and using more their back legs pushing in impulsion help them to respond better and easier to the legs, and then at canter, also at canter, put 2 poles on the ground at 20.5 m and make him do 5 strides, keep doing it until he does the 5 strides easily between those 2 poles
