I own a quarter horse mare (she's 14.1). I ride her in English Hunter (I used to do long stirrup hunter for one season - i'm not showing anymore). Well, when I got her she was completely trained. Of course not to how I ride her, but she's like my soul horse so she learns really well with me. The problem is that she has kind of gotten into the bad habit of cutting the ring. She gives a FIT about going into the corners. The reason I don't fix it all the time is that I don't have the strongest leg and she knows that... so she knows to test me with it and see if i'll push her in the corners. I USUALLY do but every now and then I don't so she has issues with it. I cannot use spurs because my legs aren't totally sturdy (I got bucked off because of them and broke my arm once). They're more sturdy now but I have an illness where it's hard for me to keep my heals down so every now and then they jiggle around (I keep them as still as I possibly can).
So my question is that do you guys have any tips on forcing her to bend and go into the corner?
Thanks for the help if you do.
