About this video

British dressage Young Professional of the Year Levi Hunt, trains 16 yr old Tom to make the step up from Prix St Georges to Inter I. One of the new movements is the canter zig-zag, so Levi gives Tom an indication in the warm-up of what he's going to work on. "He's a big horse and needs to be active as the movements come up quickly in the test" says Levi. Focusing on bend and suppleness, Levi breaks things down so leg-yield is followed by counter canter with inside bend, then half-pass to the centre line and shoulder-in up the centre finishing with a half 10m circle in quarters-in and repeating in the opposite direction. Putting it all together, Levi gradually builds the difficulty of the zig-zag.
