My horse is a gaited STB, broke to trot. Her trot is soooo uncomfortable. I can slow her up and collect, but we're english, so it's not all the relaxing.
I've decided that I'm going to start re-training her to be western.
I love that jog. Deep down I love western, I started out western.
Today we fitted her with a saddle and a girth.
I also made her a training fork, it turned out pretty nicely.
I'm keeping her in my english bridle and my nice thick snaffle.
Does anyone have some advice or warnings?
Is this a bad idea? Anyone have some nice training methods?
We're both really patient so I don't care how long it takes us. I just want it to be as simple and not stressful.
I don't want my horse to hate what we do!
