Internationally renowned 'Connected Riding' trainer Peggy Cummings works with Suezi Roberts and 15 year old Lusitano stallion Uni on improving the canter and also pirouettes. First though (in a two-part video), Peggy asks Suezi to change her posture. "Scooting the seat bones forward a bit and softening the thigh means the horse's rib-cage can expand" says Peggy, who adds "feel your bones walk as he walks, so his motion can come up and through you". When Suezi reverts to her usual position, Uni's stride shortens and tightens. Peggy continues, "soften your back as if you are blowing up a balloon and you will create a truly independent seat and leg". The pair move on to trot and canter in the next video.
