Thats good then! Just keep doing what you're doing and don't be afraid to let him go long and low too. Without the proper muscling for collection and frame, too much can do more bad than good. He's a pretty boy indeed!
Western dressage, english pleasure, low level dressage, trails, and team penning for fun. Maybe some barrels, but he's not really ready for any of that yet. Im doing as much basic foundation training as I can by myself before I send him for 60 days to be finished. Posted via Mobile Device
We are actually havimg some difficulty staying long and low. I am using a dring snaffle, because he's very soft. I ask, he drops his head, I release, and so forth, but I am not getting any "staying down". Posted via Mobile Device
It will come with time. Contrary to popular belief- long and low doesn't come all that naturally to a horse and can actually be hard for them at first. We did TONS of long and low with the OTTB gelding that I retrained before asking for any collection, and it wasn't easy for him at first either. It really helps once you get them to stretch out and relax though.
