5 Training Pillars of ST | #9

The whole is more than the sum of its parts! That applies to the 5 training pillars of Straightness Training which are:

1. Groundwork
2. Longeing
3. Work in hand
4. Riding
5. Liberty

Each training pillar will add a different dimension to an exercise and all training pillars strengthen each other.

And especially the liberty pillar will help the other training pillars to evolve.

So you'll end up with not only self carriage in the body, but also in the mind!

And thanks to ST Instructor Kim Steutel for some 'behind the scenes' shots, so you'll have an idea of how these 60 Seconds of ST are filmed by Marc Marsman and his new 'Osmo' camera.
