    Circles and droppind out


    My filly (again lol) is green broken but when I do work on the cones she falls to the outside. She doesn't drop her shoulder but falls to the outside if you know what I mean??? Kinda hard to explain.
    Let me try again she falls or leans to the outside kinda like she is moving out of the circle but I have no leg on her. It is like she is going around the circle with her body and shoulders but not with her head, her head is turned to the inside and she is moving out at her shoulder.

    How can I stop this???
    Or minimize it???

    Let me know if you need me to explain it a bit better??

    Hope you can hep

    How old is your horse and how much riding has she had? Sometimes we ask more of our young horses then they are capable of giving at a point in their training.

    Given that she is old enough and trained enough, Are you supporting her with your inside leg and pusing her with your outside leg? She may not be understanding what you want.

    A lot of people try to do circles just by pulling the horse into it with their inside rein. But, that won't work. You have to support the horse with your outside rein, too. You should give her little half halts with your outside rein.
    Good luck!

    Thanks everyone
    She is still young and has had around 4 weeks or more with me under saddle and about 3 weeks training with someone else.I'm not riding her full on as she is still a baby.
    I will have a go at that tonight and see how she goes. But too like you said I could be expecting too much from her.

    Thanks again

    Whenever she does that, immediately apply strong outside leg and outside rein to correct her. Never correct her with inside rein because this will make it worse.

    Hope this helps!
