High Headed Horse
My 16hh paint has the bad habit of getting all high headed at times, and hollowing his back out and I know that's not very good for him. I don't want to get him to put it down by just see-sawing it into place, because that's just a temporary fix.
My trainer and I are working with him using Buck Brannaman exercises, and she is saying that the headset, and collection will come with balance and with relaxation (Since he's got some anxiety issues I'm pretty sure)
He is an old roping horse that I'm turning into a hunter, and to take to the occasional gymkhana (for fun)
I need some ideas on how to help him achieve that long and low headset, like exercises that encourage it, things I could even do on the ground. Anything would be helpful!
