An on the spot demonstration of gaining control.
It could have gone badly - a real fight of wills. But Jonathan Field remained calm and keeping to his plan, he brought the horse around. It took repeated measures however. Perhaps we tend to give up too quickly when we don't get immediate results. But determined persistence paid off.
They got their quiet, controlled ride at the end.
Thanks for this lesson.

Jonathan Field was excellent in his presentation! As a teacher, I think the hardest part is making sure you are clear with your explanation, otherwise, what's the point of the exercise? Mr. Field was excellent in both his demonstration and explanation. I'm ready to tackle my horse with a "plan". Thanks for the help.

This I enjoyed very much. Love the willingness to present in actual circumstances and not in the usual calm, controlled environment. Looking forward to more of THIS trainer. Great instruction and attention to what cues indicate reconnecting focus and leadership. THANK YOU
