But a turn around is supposed to be a forward movement.
Have you thought about circling her tight around you on the lead, ie. Jogging her and bringing her down into the turn, this would require you to pull her in tighter to you and keep the momentum going and you would be moving a lot faster around beside her shoulder and you would be on the inside of the turn instead of the outside.....it's worth a try, you might be suprised........OR when that hip moves push her out into a tight jog around you going in the direction you were asking her to turn and make her move that hip A LOT then bring her back down into the turn around....she will want to keep that hip still after you've pushed her out and made her work it each time she swings it out in the turn around.....haha a bit of reining psychology there!!
Oh no, she already turns under saddle. I lift her up every once in a while when she turns into a lazy bum and starts putting weight onto her forehand. Then her bum spins out of control, which is whats happening here. Not enough weight on the hiney!
Maybe I will try jogging besides her, on the outside... where I'll have to do a lot of jogging...
... But that works under saddle, maybe I'll try to do it from the ground.
I've got a month and a week to get it down so whatever work.
