My beautiful horse Jerry wasn't trained right when he was a baby, so now its starting to affect him in everyday riding. Sometimes I'll ask him to bend through the corners, and he bends to the outside! I know I'm using all the correct aids because my instructor tells me I'm doing it right, so is it just something that I'm going to have to work out?
I ride in a smooth mouth, full cheek, single jointed snaffle, very similar to this one: Full Cheek Snaffle Bit - Dover Saddlery.
My saddle fits him fine, it's a little low in the front, but that really doesn't affect him.
All my tack is in good condition, so it must be him and his odd training that makes him do this.
So, does anyone have any exercises that will help him to bend through corners and on the straight lines?
