like me..... for example, count every gray hair on Chinga's face. I came up with 13 or 14.....

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

if you ride your horse forward enough he will stretch down into the contact try lunging your horse with side reins and if you push him forward you will see him stretch down to the bit it strengthens the top of his neck so he can reach into the cantact if you frame up by pulling your horse into frame your building the underside of the neck because he's bracing himself off the bit

Half halt. Outside rein, inside leg. It doesn't work for simply tucking in his nose or anything, it just gets them to lower their head, at least in my experience. My horse is not a giraffe, as much as she likes to think she is, so she is never allowed to stick her head up like she is one. Eventually, she learned to use her topline, and now the outside rein, inside leg cue is the cue to get underneath herself and really get to work. =]

For crying out loud, get a sense of humor. It was clear, at least I though it was, that Anabel wasn't serious. Not to mention that the OP had already received solid advice/responses to her question.

I find it best not to use sarcasm on the internet. You can't read sarcasm, you just read, and things can be misunderstood. It's not a lack of a sense of humor.

Tell me about it. I am one of the most sarcastic people I know, I get it from my dad.

When it comes to reading words on a computer screen, it is very hard to incorporate my sarcasticness to others - so I totally agree.

If you are joking - put it in ( joking ) or *joking* or even a raspberry smiley here and there.
