While longeing the horse should learn the following exercises:
• Basic transitions such as walk-trot, trot-canter
• Speeding up and slowing down within a gait
• Transitions such as stop-trot, canter-walk
• Changing the lead through the circle (by making a S over the middle)
Longe frequently with the saddle. When the horse has mastered all these exercises and gained better fitness and muscles, the riding training can then begin.
