Sarah is struggling with suppleness and submission, especially through transitions, with Prelim mare Elise. Warming up in the mare's easiest gait, the trot, BD Young Professionals award winner Levi Hunt says "submission issues are often caused by a horse not learning to go forwards into the stretch, as when you come to shorten the horse they can't do this and move into the contact." Sarah works hard to get the mare going forwards and encouraging her to stretch by leading the way with her body language. "You can't bend and stretch a horse that isn't travelling forwards" says Levi. Submission begins to come when Elise is more balanced down both reins, straighter and quicker off the aids.
