Training Tips – Walk Exercises


Narrated by Reese Koffler-Stanfield, this Training Tip from the 2019 On The Levels videos offers the rider insight into how the walk work should be ridden at Introductory Level, notes the differences between free walk and medium walk, and recommends riders practice the differences and picking up the reins to transition from the free walk to medium walk. This is a movement transition that appears to some degree in every test at every level, and is often an overlooked transition in training.

Note: as the movement excerpt shown in this video clip is from the 2019 USDF Introductory Test, be sure to check the USDF website for the most current version of any test.
