Having warmed-up in Part 1, the focus is now on collected advanced moves in 'working' rather than 'competition' mode. Laura explains "it's not about drilling, it's about technique and strength-building, and the work should be fun!" Will doesn't like to be held so Laura collects, then lets go, and emphasises that true collection requires self-carriage. Half-steps are the preparation for piaffe and ensure that "the moment Will is thinking backwards, he's thinking forwards again," says Laura. The size of the canter pirouettes varies to quicken the hind leg and develop softness. Laura provides a crystal clear explanation of her aids as she rides.
