Advice on training/schooling my horse please, desperate!! :))
I own a 15hh seven year old skewbald mare and have owned her since she was four. She is built quite downhill with a rather large body, dainty legs a very small neck which has caused many problems with fitting a saddle as every one would slip forward massively. Recently I've been working on her flat work after recently having a saddle made for her and have been trying to work her into an outline as her head used to be constantly sticking straight out, low, her ears used to be back and she looked so uncomfortable and unhappy. After sorting the saddle out and beginning to work her in an outline, I've seen a massive improvement in her moods, how she moves and her ears are constantly pricked forward now, but I was just wondering whether anyone has any training regimes in which I could follow to build the muscle up on her neck and shoulder and if there are any types of bits that could keep her head in withot her falling on it. Thank you, Hannah.
