What are you having problems with during flat work?
What benefits are you looking for during your flat work?
Well first of all I should have explained what we do. Phoebe and I do competitive showjumping. I have only had her a year and she has been very excited in the show ring and will not calm down. Now I didn't train her and I am only 14 when I got her I was only 13. I didn't know as much about horses as Ii do now and I am still learning. Since being on this site and reading I thought I would go back to basics with her in flatwork and try to calm her down so I suppose that is what I am trying to accomplish with flatwork.
I have been working on relaxing exercises like working her long and low first to get her relaxed.
We haven't been having any specific problems I just seem to get bored for some reason if that makes sense :S
I am looking to get a more relaxed well rounded horse and eventually want to compete at low level eventing
Well I hope I have answered all your questions and hope you can help me and thank you all in advance
