Espadua A Dentro

This exercise sees the horse undertake a lateral movement while walking or trotting in which his shoulders move on an inner track in relation to that followed by the hind quarters, placing the weight on the latter. In this movement, the horse curves towards the opposite side of his direction. At a canter, this is known as “Shoulder Forward”.
