I am trying to teach my horse how to collect and move off his butt. Right now he is very much on his forehand and it's like his back end is in a different county. He also goes around with his head in the air like a giraffe.
I have been lunging him with side reins, trying to help him build up those muscles in his neck, and use his ab muscles, and he does very well, but the minute those side reins come off, POOF, we're a giraffe again.
Unfortunately his confirmation doesn't help, he's a long horse.
