slowing down fast horse???
i have a 4yr old tn walker/quarter horse mix mare.she loves to go fast and i do too but im wanting her to slow down. i have never got her to lope at all and i have a very hard time trying to slow down her trot. she has a very fast bumpy and hard to ride trot. and at a gallop she is fast and unbalanced. i know that this is partly because of her being half walker but im going to show her soon and i would like to have her slowed down. ive been working on collection with her flexing,trotting over ground poles,and trying to get her softened up. she is very responsive to me but when i ask her to slow down he throws her head up. it isnt because of the bit because im using a snaffle on her.any help would be great!!
