I have many things I need to fix with my horse, but framing is pushed to the back, as it is the last of my worries right now. I was wondering how to teach a horse to frame? My horse has no past experience framing, but he does carry his head low and sometimes frames, but has no idea he's doing it. He does it for maybe one or two seconds and I pat him for it
For the future, I was wondering if there are any exercises I can do to help him learn to frame naturally and easily. What are some things I can do while riding that will put him in that position, since he does it so rarely. I usually just rode with very loose reins and give him a pat when I see he begins to frame. My method isn't quite working
I'm not teaching him to frame right now, I tried a few times while schooling him a while ago but gave up as other issues arose.
Once I fix his other problems, this will be a new project to start with him.
Framing isn't something necessary for him, I just think it would be something fun for both of us to do. I do plan to show in 2'6/3' hunters & equitation with him. Framing would be nice to learn
I'm also fully aware of what framing is, I know that I need to my horse to work from behind and focus on the haunches
