Outline in canter, engaging the hind end
So I have been taught to get my mate in an outline and off the forehand by fiddling with both reins or seesawing as most call it. When I was being told to do it, I didn't know. Having done research since then, I have stopped doing that. My friend and many other people have told me to hold her until she drips her head and then let the reins go a little too make the contact lighter. This is really working well and getting her off the forehand in canter and her head in. Is this an okay way to do it? Or are there better ways that no-one has told me about. I haven't been using the hold and the release thing for long, tried it last night and was amazing with the results.
