Haunches in: The Goal

Haunches in1 131x300 Haunches in: The GoalThe goal of hindquarter-in is to teach the horse to step with his outside hind leg under the point of weight.

The benefit is that this hind leg is required to bend more. Hindquarter-in encourages the outside hind leg to carry and makes the inside shoulder more light. The exercise increases the lateral bending and improves coordination of the limbs.

Hindquarter-in is a good preparation for pirouette, half-pass and canter changes:

  • When the hindquarter-in is carried out on a smaller circle a pirouette is the end result.
  • When the hindquarter-in is carried out on a diagonal line, this is called the half-pass.
  • When the horse in canter changes from renvers to the left to hindquarter-in to the right, this is a canter change.
