Ok so are ride went better this afternoon because we were both calm. She is actually really responsive in the D-ring snaffle. I just focused on the one rein stops and smrobs, she did turn a LOT at first but after a while she started to get it and stop faster and straighter.

I tried laterally flexing her today and I don't think she was ever taught how to do that...I read the article and I am going to try tying her head laterally tomorrow and see if it works. What is a general amount of time that it make take to teach her to flex laterally?

Not a fan, at all, of leaving a horse with its head tied in any way...whether between it's legs or left tied to the side. I don't think it stretches anything, except by force. I do all my bending exercises from the saddle and can offer instant relief and praise.

Just want everyone to know Grinder is doing wonderfully! She is laterally flexing great and she learned how to rather quickly and she does it without fighting me, She is also breaking at the poll now. Hopefully we can see some improvement soon!
