unless you can get someone very knowledgeable about them to show you how to properly put them on your horse, I would stear clear because they can do more damage then good if put on wrong

Maybe you can work on some transitions.

Yeah, transitions are good... especially practicing your walk to canter transitions.

When you get really good at them, it sort of feels like a "helicopter" taking off. Your horse rocks back and springs up and away rather than to sort of plunge into it. It takes a lot of practice.

This should help with muscling in her haunches. It takes some good power from their hind end to be able to really launch nicely. ;D

equine-we do lots of trotting already but im wondering is her head always being up will cause muscling to not build in certain places
