I need some advice here guys, I know how to get a horse long and low and how to work them that way, however retraining my standardbred we are having trouble here. He will not for the life of me bring his head down and stretch his neck at all. I sponge the reigns, I give him his head, I ask with some leg, i've even tried with NO reigns. All these methods, and still no long and low......so
What do I do to get him to put the beautiful head and neck down for me?
I mean....you could take a look at his conformation thread, but I see NO reason at all why this should be uncomfortable for him
