As some of you may know, I'm starting my filly under harness. She's doing great and is getting very light in the bridle, she responds to very little aid, she's getting good at her voice commands, and is slowly working on a rock solid woah and backing straight and steady. However, despite my best efforts she will not stop trying to put her head down to try to eat, even if it's just looking
for food that isn't there. I attribute most of this to being young and growing since she ALWAYS has food on the mind but, my question is this: Would it be wrong of me to use the overcheck? I've found it nearly impossible to get her to lift her head up from the ground driving position (behind her).
