So Cheyenne has always been a fast horse, but lately she seems to be going too fast. Her canter is now a gallop, her trot is unsittable (partly because she has a natural big trot, partly because she is fast, partly because she doesn't like to collect) and her walk is just fine but whenever I pick up my reins she brings her head up high and starts to trot or canter. Basically, I'd like help on just slowing her down. I'd like her to have nice gaits for shows and just for riding around the ring too, but I gymkhana her occasionally so I'd like her to still be able to do that. I ride her english and western, just so you know Any help on slowing her down? I can't stop her quickly either. Like from a trot to a halt. I used to be able to do that but not anymore. Today she was just galloping around the arena and wouldn't go back into a trot. Any help guys? I have a first jumping show on Saturday so I've been working on that for a while but after Saturday I'm going back to my western and I'm going to do mostly just reining and ground work and slowing and stuff like that (I just made another post about reining too if you wanna check that out ), pretty much show work, just how I'd like her to perform at a show which is controlled and slower and easy to stop and stuff like that. If you have any tips please pm me or post here, thanks!!
