Light bulb!

Tonight I had an amazing ride! My horse was being really heavy and hollow at first. Then suddenly I sat deep, squeezed with my legs and increased my contact a little bit. Just like that my horse dropped her head in to a beautiful frame and went dead straight down the wall at a canter! I was quite happy with my horse when we both hit that sweet spot.

She's a bit hit and miss. Some days she's just super and others she takes a lot of muscle to work. We've been working on it since last August. She's usually good at the walk and trot but something I do makes it difficult to get her at a canter, especially since she is also still building the muscles needed to carry herself. I'm pretty sure I lean off too much to one side so she is trying to rebalance herself by going all crooked. Thank you, I know you work hard with your horse as well.

:)

I'm sure as you continue to work on it, you'll both improve lots and she'll be able to hold it for longer!
