Thanks everyone. I will have to do that. If I hold her back as much as possible she has a prance to her step going down hills. I can have her walk up hills no problem,trotting no problem,cantering no problem...my issue is the down hill part. I see it as not respecting me either and I sometimes lose my stirrups O.O Disaster waiting to happen,I know....so I will try these little steps and see how it improves our ride. All the other horses walk down it and we are left behind as I try to make her walk down it...that's the sucky thing as I have to tell my friends to wait up :P hahaa..thank you once again.
