OK I know it is a basic principle, but I have to ask because I am confused. When transitioning from a trot to a walk, I pretty much just sit from posting with a bit of a half halt and my horse will slow down. Is there a more correct way of doing this?
As for canter to trot or walk, I am more confused. What aid do I give to let her know that it is time to slow down without pulling on the reins to slow her down?
We are mostly doing walk/trot but I would like to start some cantering. She is an OTTB so I want to do this correctly so I don't ruin her. Thank you! Good advice is greatly appreciated!
