Hey there, nice little horse you have there! It sure can be tricky to figure out what they're doing underneath you sometimes. Looks like she's moving a bit hollow, which could make her feel heavy on her front end. Also, a hollower carriage is typial in a pacey horse. Looks like she's moving laterally, which a non gaited horse does not do. From the pic, looks like she could be doing a stepping pace.

I agree with sudds. Her nose is pushed way out, if you work on getting her head more on the vertical she would probably even out quite a bit.

I'm not quite sure what hollow means in that context, could you please explain? :) Thank you very much for the feedback, she is still a work in progress. I am really going to work hard on her head set this summer, I've been trying to achieve a nicer one for her for a long time.

Hi, moving in a hollow frame means the horse is pulling with it's front end to move, instead of rounding their back and driving with their hind end underneath them. When a horse drives with their back end, they move in a more naturally collected position (their backs round up, which pushes the hind end down and creates more power. A good way to get your horse to work in this frame is to do hill work. Make them walk up a steady incline, when going up an incline, it forces them to use their back end which will make it stronger. When you get energy coming from behind, that's when you can harness that energy with your reins and get them "up on the bit" and get that nice collected headset. Your horse should understand flexing and giving to pressure on the bit from a stand still before they can do it at a walk. It's amazing, once you get your horse moving right, the headset falls in so naturally! Hope this helps. :)

Thank you so much! I have never tried working with an emphasis on hills, but I definitely will be hitting the the hilliest trails once this stupid ice melts! :)

If you're going to get benefit from this start on modest hills and work your way up to more challenging ones. Stay at the dog walk!!!!! This will make the horse work with his back end instead of pulling with the front. It also takes away the inertia that a horse can use to "help" them up a hill.

Good luck when the ice melts!

Am I seeing a dished head on the chestnut? I was beginning to think I had the only TWH in the word without that classic straight profile.
