    Stopping comes from your seat and thights. I half halt first to let my horse know a new cue is coming, then I sit deep, and close my knee's. You continue to drive forward, because the downward transition must still come from behind, while closing the opening to continue to move forward with my hands.

    Does any of that make sense? You might need someone to show you face to face.

    Yeah, I definitely need someone who can you show me these things. Haha

    So I should continue to urge her into the canter or whatever while sitting back and pulling back on the reins?

    I see a lot of really good training fix-its, but I haven't seen anything about trimming and shoeing (maybe I missed it?). If your horse is wearing shoes for the first time in a while, or she's wearing shoes and is out of shape, the extra weight of the shoes plus you riding might be throwing her balance off. It's happened for some of my horses. If she's barefoot, make sure her toe is rolling over correctly and that her feet are balanced well.
