looking to the outside
alright, ive always had a little bit of a hard time keeping my horse, sully, looking to the inside, but since i took a break from riding him while i leased another horse it has gotten to be a really bad problem. I noticed that when i ask for the trot on the right diagonal, he sticks his stomach in and looks to the outside, as if hes trying to get away with not trotting. now, when were trotting on the left diagonal, he looks to the outside ith his tummy in again, so you cont correct his position with the reins. so far ive been trying to correct him with leg pressure, but he dosnt respod to it at the trot. i dont use spurs, and ive been thinking about using a dressage whip, but he hates them. i have also been trotting him in 10 meter circles to try to get his head on right, but he just goes back to his original position. any ideas of what to do!?
He knows when you're happy, he knows when you're comfortable, he knows when you're confident,
and he always knows when you have carrots.
