Hey everyone, I am new to this forum I have been training this lovely Canadian mare for a few months now, and although we have had a few bumps in the road and disagreements, she now responds like a dream and is completely wonderful to ride. She is slower to 'get' things than most of the other horses I have worked with, and so I hope that you guys will be able to give me a few tips!
I am trying to ask for a canter, but I don't want her to run into it. I've thought about using a hill to my advantage, as I have done that in the past, but I want to hear some of the techniques you guys have. I am not interested in beating her into a canter, I want her to understand what I am asking of her, and be willing. Many thanks!
