So my mare doesnt have spectacular movement. Which is funny, since she's half saddlebred. She's got most of her characteristics from her pony mum. I'd like to know if I could improve the way she moves. Like shoes, chains/weights, certain exercises that will help her movement improve. She also has somewhat of a choppy canter. She's got short, quick strides. I've heard that tapping them on the butt with a crop lengthens their stride, like jockeys do (obviously I'm not beating her) and that works a little. Heres some of her moving:
These are all pretty old, but theyre all I have of her moving.
Please don't comment on me, theyre all from right after I hadn't ridden in a few months and I was out of shape and bad. :P
I just wanna know how to make her movement better. Thanks!
