I'm in the process of teaching my new baby how to not resist, and basically go into a frame, and he keeps his head much lower. My old mare used to do this as well, and I know it still looks nice - But do you think it's acceptable? Where do you like to keep your horse's head, or is about where he likes to keep it?
I know in the sport of dressage (not combined in eventing) the horse's tend to look even a little tense with their heads held high.
This is where my mare kept her head
I'll try to get a photo of my Paint's head soon.
