I just bought a young mare just over a month ago & she's doing really awesome. The only problem i'm having with her is when I get her into a lope or gallop, she is almost impossible to turn! I've worked with her on the ground & she has great flexion at a walk & trot but anything faster & she can get pretty hard to turn & this is sort of going to be an issue as i've started her in gymkhanna & am hoping to eventually be able to run her on the barrels & poles.
I was hoping someone might know of a bit that would help to encourage her to turn better (she's in a tom thumb right now because the snaffle just wasn't cutting it with her). Any suggestions???
