So this is my turning question:
My mare always has been not so good turner. I want to fix this. She walks and when you direct her to turn with the reins, she turns her head and her body goes straight still So tell me if i'm correct, what I need to do is use my outside leg and give pressure so she will turn in?
2nd question on stopping
She is also a bad stopper! Please let me know if i'm using the right technique to fix this. I lean back, say whoa, then pull a bit at her mouth. When I realized she still doesn't stop I was thinking to do a one rein stop. Is that right? I have also trained her to back up after a stop, it's just getting her to do the stop. I wish she had a stop like my gelding, who stops on a dime! Any advice would be great. Thanks everyone
