Pleease Slow Down!!!!
Sometimes when I ride Jubilee she gets into these moods where she always wants to go fast. She's an ex-racer, just so you know. When I'm walking her, she'll frequently break into a trot, and sometimes when I'm trotting, she'll break into a canter. I notice when I collect my reins, she takes that as a sign to speed up. Other times, she has a perfectly even pace. But when she tries going fast like this, if I sit back and use a lot of leg to sink down, it helps alot. She hates when I pull on her face, so using a lot of rein does not do much. Does anyone have any other tips I can try with her to get her to slow down?? Oh, and also ... she's a lot slower in more contained areas.
Thanks in advance guys!!
