How to get a better trot?
Hello, so you could say today, I had a pretty nasty ride. I rode english for the 10th time so I am still learning. I saddled up and got my little crop and I soften Champ up alot because he has been so heavy on my hands since I put my snaffle back on him after being in a curb for a month in preperation for Aqha show. Before that month he was very soft in the snaffle. Anyways, I pushed him into a trot but he is so HARD in the face I feel like I am at war! I used my crop to push him forward but he kept jigging and trying to break into a canter or break into a WP jog. I got after him a bit and I fell off and broke my stirrup leather...lovely. Anyways, just curious to see if anyone has input on what I should do to push him into a nicer trot.
