I was wondering How to get a pony to flex at the poll with out doing rolker and with out tie downs and with out having contact and giving her a hard mouth?
So a more natural approach And I'm not being critical to my pony she is PERFECT and I think she would be a good dressage horse she gets her back legs underneath her very responsive will not cut corners the only thing is the head not comming down or even tucking in a little.
I would rather take up another sport if my pony does not enjoy dressage eg..someone saying I have to do rolker or hyper flexition to her
So is there any way I can position my self so she becomes collected or anyway to train them (a more natural approach) To break at the poll and do some proper collection?
I can get horses to do it really well and have done rider classes with horses and my pony and all my horses give to the bit really eaisly and break at the poll with hardly any collection but not my pony lol anyway my pony is a sweet heart and we both enjoy dressage and we are doing it at a basic level and I'm happy to stay at a basic level if that means she still enjoys it :)
