Ok I will bite. How do I get my poneh to make the pretty dressage head-set?

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Ilovedressage, you will find that we have several very good dressage riders on her who are competing FEI levels and have been doing so for many years people are more inclined to ask them than someone that we dont know and don't have any history of.

Online clincs from people who have no experiance to back it up are not generaly well recieved here.
What results do you have? who have you been training with? what level are you riding at? training at? What experiance do you have with young horses? problem horses? horses with less than ideal build for dressage?

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

pull it down with draw reins and dont let it up! or duck tape. Duck tape fixes everything.

Faye, Im presuming that any videos posted will be random ones pulled from the internet.
OP, as Faye said - people are more inclined to ask members with genuine experience, than someone who just wants to post dressage videos.

Chiilaa - as well as the duct tape and draw reins, try carrying a bat so every time the horse puts it head up you can smack it on the poll - itll learn quickly to hold its head all pretty like :)
Also, try the 'yank and crank' method. Kick really hard, preferably with a god, sharp set of rowleys, and then lean back a bit of yank your arms in a see-saw motion. This will get the hind legs active, and give you that pretty headset. Don't worry if the horse rears - that means its really engaged- like those rears they do in the spanish riding school

Nuh, you are wrong. All you need is tie down!

NUUUH
You has to tape the mouth shut so they can't open it.

AND then.

You duck tape the nose, to the chest, and the legs together, and GO. TRUST ME. IT WORKED ON DUFFY.

Or ride a stick horse?

Do you recon duck tape will fix Reeco's bolting problem??
If not it might fix my wrist after he broke it the last time he got me off!

You also need to tape the hind legs to your own legs, and ride with a cattle prod. Sheesh Sophie, amateur
