I want to learn how to do it to give myself some assurance on the trail and such, and so I tried it yesterday. I reached down and *tried* to pull her head around to my knee, and instead of giving her head and stopping, she kept circling and fighting the pressure. As time went on, she got a tiny bit better about giving to it, but...she's a long way from actually stopping. Now I'm wondering: am I doing something wrong? Or is she just not giving to the bit properly?
If lack of responsiveness is the problem, what can I do to get her to stop fighting it, and give her head to me without moving around? Just..practise?
And if I'm the problem, how do you correctly perform a one-rein stop?
