We have tried braided reigns, conditioner, new gloves, new bits, this stuff you put on your gloves and it gives them better grip, instruction on how to hold them, strength training, and remembering to collect. But she cannot keep them. My trainer is going nuts over it and it is not the horse, the rest of us can ride him and have won on him.
We know part of it is because she is stiff riding, and her shoulders shoot up so high you cannot see her neck, but her horse is bombproof. The other part is she balances with her hands not her legs so she has a hard time staying level.
So we are at a loss on what to do or if she should just switch to in hand and halter classes because she's blowing hundreds of dollars and never getting higher than 4th
