Thing is he doesn't "dread" that corner, he's more than fine with it. Every pace other than a canter he doesn't rush, takes his time and mozys along. He eats there, he isn't spooky in the least around it, but it is my balance, I am starting to notice a difference. If you could put that into consideration, although the fact you consistently go against how everyone else is saying it's balance, my doctor said it would be off and I'm telling you it is, I doubt there's much luck there. Yes he got away with it before but I'm working with what I CAN. Obviously when people post in this forum there horse is doing "something" they don't like and need help with (aka the horse got away with it at least once or they wouldn't be asking for help), so why is it more of a big deal for me that he tries to steady himself to make up for my loss of balance? I'm taking advice from the other posters and it does seem to help him, however main point being "I" can't do much at this point. As for the horse in the picture we both seem to see two different things. I'm not saying his head is to my leg but I do see the corner of his eye in the direction he's going and not on the outside just like it looks like the rider in the picture could have a better view of his horses face in the direction the horse is going rather than the opposite. Not that he can't see it, but he'd probably have a better view. Like I said, I can't take pictures because it's just me, but you will have to deal with the fact it is indeed a balance issue and treating it as such does work, but like I keep saying, there's not much I can do myself at the moment.
