Clip Of The Week – Western Pleasure Practice – Steve HeckamanSt

Steve Heckaman is one of my favorite trainers to watch. His hands are always soft, and I have never seen him rip off a horses face like to many other Western Pleasure riders do. Steve is an amazing showman too. In this video he is working his horse at the counter canter. Counter cantering is a great exercise to strengthen your horse’s hind quarters and make him an all around better loper. This video is a “text book” demonstration of the counter canter. Check it out!
