Then I went to college.
My sister is a less experienced rider and she hasn't been able to ride the pony often enough. The pony got stubborn, and my sister's response was to get gradually more and more heavy handed without even really knowing it. The last time that I got on her, she seemed to have "regressed" terribly. She just wants to charge through my aids.
I want to do what I can to get her tuned back up while I'm home for the summer. So... should I go back to using a bit with a curb chain just until I can get her attention back? A lot of this stems from the fact that she's got a spicy little attitude and doesn't always think that she should do what's asked of her.
