I'm struggling with free walk on a long rein, I just can't get the hang of it I really need some top tips to up my marks and get it right as I only scored a 5 on the last test and the judge had underlined "long rein" twice. What am I doing wrong and what should I be doing? I don't fee I can give a longer rein without chucking the contact away Hattie did briefly stretch down, but not as much as usual.
Any thoughts would be most welcome :)
Go to 2.50 (it was only a short diagonal of H to B)
(This is only our second prelim test as Hattie is still quite green at this and we have only recently been working on canter)
