Well now that me and chance can w.t.c and jump again! A new problem has come up [it always seems to work that way!]
When I trot she will put all her head weight to leaning into the bit! And its really hard to ride like that, I've been trying to lock my arms in place so that she has to get away from that pressure by picking her head up. But it takes for ever and after a while I just have to stop cause im getting to tired from doing it. I've tried squeezing her sides when she does it and she picks her head up for a second then yanks it back down!!!
The only thing that's working which I don't want to keep doing cause its bad, but I've just been yanking back on her mouth so it becomes very uncomfortable and at some points see saw hard enough so all I need to do is just pick up the reins and she will think twice. GAH and I hate doing that but that's the only thing that seems to work!
I don't want her to hate the bit or me riding her because of me doin that, so I need some advice quick! You can go a head and yell at me about the see sawing because I promised myself I would NEVER do that to any of my horses :( hense the reason why Im coming here so I can have a different game plan to deal with it. She doesnt do it at the walk or canter just at the trot.
Im using a french link loose ring korsteel snaffle. Upside: when I do see saw it doesnt jab into her teeth. But I still don't want to have to do that.
Thanks a ton for those that reply!
