Can you fix peanut rollers + loping on the forehand?
I'm looking at a possible horse for sale but he looks like he holds his head a little bit to low like a peanut roller. Is there any way I can fix that or at least make it a little better? Also sometimes he tends to get on the forehand (which I'm guessing is because of his head being so low) are there any excises to help with that?

I am not going into details as I am sure someone can explain better than I, but yes it can be "fixed". Depending on the horses natural headset, it may never be as high as you would like it, but it certainly can be brought up to a decent level through proper conditioning and training.

I thought you were someone from a different country using one of those translating tools!:shock:

- Yes, you can fix a horse that carries his head too low and lopes heavy on the forehand. You'll have to kind of do some basic work, push him forward, get him moving from his rear-end and get his body up underneath himself. You'll also have to pick him up some at the lope.

Peanut rolling is a little harder to fix but you can do it...
