I just read in Katyt thread that a horse sticking there tongue out can be a sign of crookedness.
My eventer whilst schooling always has her tongue poking to the left its not hanging out barely visible like. However when doing any other work she is a mouther not frantic or in an anxious way more like she is softly playing with her bit.
She is currently in a rubber french link and is very very sensititve to rein aids I have her in a running martingale at home as I ride in the fields and she can get a bit hot and ready to go. She is your typical mare you do not tell her anything you must ask her and she might oblige if she feels like it!
So my question is is it my riding that could be making her crooked or could she be weak behind making schooling slightly more difficult?
I do ride bareback alot in summer and I noticed when on a circle and asking for canter she tends to throw me in to the circle just a shift in weight inwards.
Im quite sure this is all my riding as I havent had a steady instucter or lessons since the beginging of alst summer but id like to be sure
