So my work with Allegra has been going really well recently while my instructor has been out of town. She's finally accepting the bit and collecting up her head for me. But as she does this we're getting into a new problem...
When I started riding her she hadn't been ridden for about half a year. But, lucky for me, she gets in shape crazy fast. For a while we put off canter work but now we're getting into it I can tell that she really enjoys it.
Anyways, we're starting to have an issue. When we're going to the left, which is her better way, she leans like crazy and it kills my outside leg. But only when we're on a circle. I know that my instructor warned me of this because she's still pretty young and rather green but it's really starting to bug me. She'll do it walk, trot, or canter, it doesn't matter. And nothing I do seems to help. Any ideas for that?
Going right she also tends to lean but not too badly. She'll just try to cut off some of the circle but if I remind her most of the time I can get her back to normal.
My instructor isn't going to be back for a while and I decided that I needed to do something about it even while she's gone. Any help will be loved! She's amazing with her head and you can tell that she's very happy being ridden but the fact that she leans drives me crazy.
