Western horse gone English? Sort of...

My western gone English horse Jack, has a bad western habit. He holds his head down like a western pleasure horse! The reins are where they're suppose to be. Not too loose not too tight, I'm not sure what to do! Thanks!

Holding his head down isn't a "bad" western habit, its a good one. And he does it because that's how he was trained.

Is it a AQHA or APHA? They are trained to keep their heads low while they move and are naturally built for it. Some other breeds might also have a naturally low headset because of their conformation.

Otherwise contact a trainer, they can usually fix that sort of "problem".

Hope I helped,
