Great! OK, my next dumb question...having just gotten back into horses after a hiatus of about 10 years, what is NOW the best way to acheive a stronger top line....again, I have the time, just tell me what to do!
Let me tell you what groundwork we've worked on:
-Yielding hind and fore quarters
-flexing to the halter
- Lungeing (to some aspect, he really struggles at this, or maybe I am the cause)
From the saddle:
- one rein stops
-heavy whoa on loose reins
-SOME impulsion exercises
He does well with them all except lungeing.
I'm hoping I'm on the right track! Times have changed a little since I owned my first horse. Now I own three and loving every minute of it!
