In this extended footage of the 2015 USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum, Willy Arts works with Danielle Farr Veasy and three-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Harrison VZ. Willy discusses the importance of the three-and-four-year-old years as developmental years and how those years can have an influence on the horse further in their career. Willy focuses on connection and getting the horse to stretch into the bit.
The 2015 USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum was held at Shannondale Farm in Alpharetta, GA, and featured Scott Hassler and Willy Arts as clinicians.
