Im teaching her dressage and the fact that she's built downhill makes it harder for her to stay on the bit but she is becoming very balanced.
Thanks! We do dressage as well!
And we've been training for a year working on just balance (she was out of shape when I got her a year ago) and building up her hind end, and we're just now getting into collection and getting her on the bit. I agree with you, being built downhill does make it harder for them inherently, but def possible with training and the right muscles toned!
We do Eventing, just started that last year at the Intro level at some schooling mini trials and Sandie LOVES it! She loves to jump, and let me tell you, that big powerful QH butt makes them good at that!
