In this video, Eva Deimel and her student Lea practice walking a distance correctly, being able to step out a distance accurately – a foundation you shouldn’t even start without. Learn the correspondence between distances and canter strides to apply this knowledge in your next ride!

In the showjumping training sessions with Eva Deimel, it becomes clear that the dressage work is extremely important. Check if you have the basics right! Learn what a canter stride means, how to find the right tempo and how to successfully ride gymnastic lines.
