Bending around turns..?
So, my goal for my next lesson is to work on bending around the turns/corners at the canter. I feel like Dakota is very unbalanced and counterbent when we canter, and it's starting to effect my jumping. So I'm going to try to figure out how to bend him to the inside and help him be more balanced. The only problem is... I don't know where to start. Basically what I'm trying to ask is, how do you get your horse on a proper bend? What are your legs, hands, and seat doing?
Any advice is much appreciated!
