I'm working on turning my hunter into an eventer, and we have a really low-key event coming up this weekend
We've been doing a ton of flatwork in preparation for the dressage part, but the one thing we've been struggling is is our free walk. The second I give Roxy her head she jerks the rest of the reins out of my hands and starts zigzagging all over. I know I need to keep her straight using leg pressure, but do you guys have any tips to help keep her straighter and still listening to me despite not having contact? Thanks!
