Ok, so I can line drive a horse with a surcingle and lines. I can do figures, transitions, etc however I can never get them to keep going when I don't have those darn rings to rely on. The reins end up going over their backs and they get all contorted and lock their necks and refuse to go then and start spinning around to face me and won't move back into the right position. Even my best line driving horses with the surcingle refuse to do it. It must have something to do with my body position and total lack of skills but I can't get them to keep going foward unless I can keep those reins perfectly at each side of the withers and I always need a driving whip to help move them forward. I am mostly self-taught though, I would LOVE to go to an in-hand clinic with one of the dressage masters. *sigh* When I win the lottery or something I can afford that.
