My horse has been dragging his feet since we got to his new barn. He's tripping often because of it. He's always been a very surefooted horse and has never really tripped. He's always kinda dragged his feet, but at the old barn that was never a problem cause the footing was super. The new barn is cheaper, and the footing isn't quite as even as the last barn. I know it's possible to ride well in this arena because the other boarders have no issue with it, because their horses pick their feet up and carry themselves better.
Any exercises you would suggest for this? He is an ex eventer that has been retired from jumping and is now just re learning dressage. He's doing great with responsiveness as far as leg yields, turn on the haunches, circles and serpentines. We have some poles to use, but no cavaletti blocks yet.
Suggestions would be great!
