The Academic long rein is based on the groundwork, longework and handwork. For those, who already master the basic, it completes the frame around the horse and is the logical next step. In groundwork you place yourself in front of the horse and build up aids from the front. You teach the inside and outside aids. Later you take other leading positions. In longing on the inside and in handwork on the outside. Ending with the ability of placing yourself behind the horse in long reining to complete the frame around it.
