I touched on Connection in the Program Overview video and this video goes into a little more detail about Connection. The three key parts of Connection are Speed/Energy, Distance and Direction, and the three key takeaways to keep in mind during any part of working with your horse are:

- Be consistent; do not retract your statements.
- Be patient.
