Just thinking about this today after riding my mare up some hills. She will naturally collect herself very nicely, the difference in how she feels at a trot is amazing.
If I put a verbal cue to this every time we go up a hill, logic would say that she'll associate that word with being in this collected state, correct?
Then eventually I could use that verbal cue with no hills. Wondering if anyone has done this and how it went? Thoughts? Suggestions?
