Hi, my horse is a thoroughbred x warmblood mare (she's more thoroughbred than anything, though!) and she's going into season, so she's very stubborn and acting like she's walking on hot coals.
Anyway - I was riding in trot and she kept slipping into canter. The canter wasn't out of control, but it was really annoying. She also holds her head up high so I don't have much control. The dentists coming out to look at her teeth.
(Btw, I ride her in a grackle and martingale with a normal bit. She was tried in a rugby Pelham and found it really uncomfortable cos she's really sensitive in the mouth so I don't think a stronger bit would work)
What do you suggest I do?
