First Part: Jane Savoie reveals the secret that elite athletes have known for years-the power of visualization to affect performance. By
visualizing your mind with correct mental pictures of movements ridden well, you can
see the right images in your mind's eye.
This first DVD demonstrates the rider's position and movements and exercises required
at the Training Level. You will see alternating from rising to sitting trot,
changes of direction, upward and downward transitions, 20-meter circles, shallow loops in the trot, and transitions from medium walk to free walk and back again.
In the second DVD in this informative series, Jane covers the movements and exercises required
at the First Level. You will see 10-meter circles in the trot, 15-meter circles in the canter, trot serpentines,
leg yielding, taking the reins out of the hands, lengthenings, change of lead through the trot, and
a counter canter.
