Sorry if I missed a thread about this already, I searched but if there is one already started just point me in the right direction!
I'm curious as to what everyone's methods to getting quicker and smoother transitions are. Both up in speed and slowing down.
My mare is currently at a trainers and a little bit on the lazy side (okay, she looks a lot on the lazy side). The trainer is working on getting her to respond quicker and I'm going to start going out there to work together to find out which way works best for me and my mare as a pair.
I like having a bunch of different ideas to work with horses because horses are all different and everyone rides slightly different. So if what my mare's current rider is doing works for them but doesn't work for me and my mare as a partner, I have some other ideas to try outside of what I've learnt on the few lazy horses I've ridden. It always seems to be hot wires that I ended up riding.
