I've been riding a pony at our yard for a couple of months now, and I have just had a lesson on him.
In the lesson, my instructor told me to do a load of stuff, and towards the end of the lesson (after falling off 3 times), she was working really well.
Now, I feel like I haven't acheived anything. My instructor said that I have a good length for my reins, but not enough contact.
So, when I get that contact, or try to, she just leans her head out at much as she can,
And instead of arching her neck down, she arches up.
I don't know what I can do to make her work in an outline!
She's very lazy and is loads of work!
And when I ride her, I feel like I can't make her work properly!
Can anyone give me any tips on how to get her working in an outline?
And accept my contact?
