This short clip was taken from a clinic at University of Minnesota in 2011. This segment of the clinic was to give a basic understanding of a counter canter lead change vs simple change. The basic concept is to switch leads "FROM" the counter canter rather than switch "TO" the counter canter. It is easier for a horse to switch to the correct lead rather than to make it harder for them to switch to an uncomfortable lead. If the horse is already uncomfortable in the counter canter, he is more apt to switch to be more comfortable with just a bump with your aids.
