My daughter has been riding Billy alot lately getting him ready for the up coming show season.
I was giving her a lesson, and she said he was really hard to flex to the right.. Me automatically thinking it was to do with his teeth (he was due) or soreness I got the vet out to do a overall check up. He said he only had one sharp up the top left, but he reckons it was not enough to cause his to be resistant going around to the right. And he wasnt sore any where.
All our tack is professionally fitted to the horse, so I have no problem with the tack...
So the problem is, when she was riding in a 20m circle, her position was good, she had her inside rein slightly open, squeezing her inside leg on the girth, and the outside leg behind the girth, holding the outside rein... and he just wont flex that way... he does at the walk, and canta, but the trot is the main problem.
After a 10min walk warm up, I always make her do a excercise with him, to flex his neck around to her toe each way, and he does that without any problem...
This one has got me puzzeled....any ideas??
Thanks in advance
