Just to sort of explain this, the dressage arena lies parallel to the stable area, and whenever I go along the side furtherest away from the stables, she leans to the inside and even as I try to push her back out with my inside leg, she still moves away from the side towards the middle of the arena, and eventually I end up trying to encourage her back to the outside with my outside rein, which leaves her body straight and her neck turned outside...
I need a little advice on how to correct this, or if I must change something I am doing.
Another thing she does is leaning in on circles, and speeding up as well. She is quite stiff and battles to bend in the neck, so she is very straight in the body and holds her head up quite high.
Her circles are also affected by how they lie with the stable area (if that makes any sense?). She will work more to the outside on the part of the circle that is closest to the stables, and then get all straight and try to cut as it gets further.
Any help with that?
Thanks in advance!
