Ok so this question goes out to the people who do dressage and O/F: Is there a difference on how you turn the corners? My current H/J trainer is re-teaching me on corners by having me keep the horse's head/neck straighter as she turns. I also have been working on using my outside leg more to tell her to turn and rely less on my reins.
On the other hand, the lessons I have taken for dressage has been more about bending around the corner. That trainer told me you should be just able to see the horses inside eye and the horse should make a gentle crescent.
I understand these are two different disciplines but I was just wondering what the advantage to keeping a horses head and neck straight instead of curving around the corner when jumping.
(It is definitely helping and my green horse does much better when I keep her straight like that)
