Prince Elmelund with reins on the bit for the first time today.

First, we did the following exercises with the reins in standing:

  • head down through the cavesson
  • stelling to the left and to the right through the cavesson
  • chewing on the bit (give into the hand)
  • head down through the bit

After that we did the circle and straight with LFS, using the double reins. These exercises were only done for a few moments, just to get him used to the bit. The following days we will repeat giving the aids through the double reins so he will understand the meaning. The following should happen:

1. The rider closes his hand

2. The horse gives into the hand

3. The rider opens the hand

4. The horse searches for the hand
