Foxhunter, that's what she does when given enough rein for long and low. If I drop all contact she will stretch forward and down but it's a very flat forward and down and isn't doing anything either. Sure she's not as engaged as she could be but it's a lot better than the alternative. She likes to hollow when given her choice on how to work.
I'm not a dressage rider so I'm under no illusions here - there's no way I'm going to get this right without help!! Definitely need to get back to regular lessons...
Thanks Tiny!! I'm definitely lucky to have her. I do worry that her physical issues, the bad stifle in particular, are the reason she isn't working as well as she could/should... time to have a bodyworker out again methinks.
