Quote & Video of the Week: D. Baumann-Pelney & Helenne Arianoff

"Equestrian tact is not only the subtlety of the aids but also the feeling for the choice of the aids that have to be applied, and it is the velvet softness in the coordination."
                                             - Nuno Oliveira

I have watched this video many times, being a fan of Nuno Oliveira and his horses. This video shows one of his students, Helenne Arianoff, in a lesson riding canter halfpass, a triple canter pirouette and one tempi changes all the way around the indoor arena. The horse is very light and happy in his work. A joy to see!
