Continuing education of half pass. Also introduction to the walk pirouette shoulders around the haunches. Sometimes the bending is incorrect, other times the transversal rotation is wrong. At other moments Chazot is close. He is exploring his body with his usual spirit and opinions. At one moment a big fly bothers him. Another time he blows up because he is full of energy. You may observe that the reins are long. It is a total utopia to believe that contact on the bit gives control. In fact if you watch the horse carefully you will observe that the moments where his body functions at its best is when he barely touches the bit. Jean Luc
They were working shoulder in left in hand and it was for Chazot the first introduction to the half pass left at the trot. At the end, I asked jean Luc how the training session went and he laughed and said P.F.D. In French this mean "pas foncierement degueulass." The translation in English is, "not totally disgusting." For a French, who by nature is very critical, I translated that he was quite happy with Chazot.
