    -definitely trot poles and half halting
    Also try keeping her head up when you canter so she doesn't buck
    If you have her canering nocely do a lot of simple lead changes

    Try see-sawing her like pulling one hand back, and then the other like a constant movement, or even draw reins.

    I don't like see-sawing. You should learn how to use your seat and little half halts rather than your horses poor mouth to slow down.

    When you half-halt you have to use your horses mouth first off. And also make sure when your riding use correct equitation, it really helps, like make sure your heels are down and your toes are pointed at the horses nose, and sit deep in the saddle.

    Im my opinion, you should NOT see-saw the horse's mouth. I used to do it, till my horse started weaving his head because he thought it was what I was asking him to do. It took me forever to re-train him not to.
    It worked like a charm for a while though! But no, it has adverse effects... try some other stuff (like circling) first.

    NEVER SEE-SAW YOUR HORSES MOUTH!!! AND I REPEAT NEVER!

    Im sorry if im being alil upfront here, but I can not handle anyone, treating their horses mouth as a tug-a-war game!! Im totally disagreeing with you, harlee rides horses!! See-sawing is one thing... but using draw reins to try and prevent to much implusion. Draw reins, using them while a horse has a problem with maintaining a balanced rythem, in the trot is just asking for a disaster that could be easly avoided!!

    Ok everyone, get up off your seat I have a little example to show you what see-sawing in your horses mouth feels like to them. Ok I reckonmending doing it outside, with no obsticles... try to run in a straight line while shaking ur head... its impossible isnt it... that's what it feels like to your horse... a great dressage rider said that to me, when I was young, and I have never forgoten...

    I never see-saw.
    My OLD OLD trainer always wanted everyone to see-saw; it's wrong.
