So, lately I have been having problems with Zoey ducking out to the left in combinations. Always to the left. The other day when I was doing just plain flat work I realised my left side is significantly weaker than my right. I'm guessing Zoey couldn't feel an even amount of pressure on both sides leaving her open to duck to the left. I have never had to use a crop on her before as she is a very nicely forward moving horse but, would it be helpful to use a crop in my left hand when jumping? I would prefer to use all natural aids but I just seem to be so much weaker on that side.
To put it simply, do you think it would be helpful to use a crop so she doesn't learn to duck out?
