Bringing Horse Home From Trainer Need Some Training Advice

I have had my 3 yo. AQHA at a trainer for about 120 days and I'm brining her home due financials. She is being trained for Western Pleasure. She has the basics but needs to be finished so with guidance I hope to finish her myself. She is by Reinvest in Gold. She is level headed and willing to learn. She has a natural low head and she has a long strided jog. I need some tips to help keep her collected and shorten her stride. Her lope is great but she just needs to be collectively slowed down. Thanks so much for any advice!

Think of it as slowing down the leg, because short, choppy strides is not ideal western pleasure. You want a slow, but extended leg. That's where the "pretty" comes in ;) Genetics has a lot to do with it. But from there, you'll ask your trainer if she is trained to do lateral work yet. I like to do lots of circles and lateral work to get the belly up and hip under. Also lateral yielding (like shoulder-ins/outs) and counter cantering. :)
