The Biomechanics of Canter

This on-demand webinar looks at the biomechanics of canter and the differences between different types of canter from collected to extended. As a forward and asymmetrical gait canter is effective at mobilising the back and warming up your horse. 

Gillian focusses on variations and problems within canter including gait irregularities, asymmetries, diagonal dissociation, bucking, four-time canter and the lateral canter.

This on-demand webinar is illustrated using high-definition slow motion videos of Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses. 

Gillian studies this pace in detail with views from above as well as from in front and behind to truly analyse the gait and movement through the horse’s whole body.

Gillian suggests techniques and exercises to improve the quality of the canter, and top tips for upping your scores in the dressage arena. 

This webinar is perfect for anyone wishing to better understand, assess and improve their horse’s canter.
