I've had my horse for 10 years now, and although he has gotten ALOT better, He can still get very heavy on my hands. I would really like to fix the problem once and for all. We do mainly hunter/jumpers. He's good at the w/t/c but its when I throw in canter-trot-canter transitions, simple changes, jumping. He's just a go-go-go type of horse and it would be nice if he had some whoa. I was wondering if any of you have any exercises that would help us. Thanks!!
P.S. I sometimes thought he was just getting ahead of me expecially in the transitions so I would do alot of "changing my mind" so he couldn't "guess" whats going on next. Never really fixed it though. : /
