Hello y'all. I ride English on my paint mare Squaw. I've recently been doing a lot of her retraining. But here's my problem:
So, I've been riding English and lately I've realized that Squaw's collection sucks. Hunter horses are supposed to keep their noses tucked in. And Squaw noses out and tries to lower her head. Not to thut my own horn, but my equitation isn't bad at all, so that's not apart of the problem. When I go to post, Squaw noses out a lot, and resists the bit. She tries to tugs the reins out of my hands while trotting. It's hard for me to stay balanced during this. Then, on top of that, she thinks I'm asking her to stop or slow down. So I'll be in mid post and nearly fly over the side because she pulls me up and then stops!
I hope you guys can understand that, please let me know if you have any questions about the situation. Thanks everyone!
