You ride down a stright line in midle of arena and you push your horses sholder around and go the other way. It is not a role back you do not want them to sit back and turn around. You want to push their sholder around and stay at the same gait. It should look like a hot dog shape when your done. It is sopose to opien out the sholders and flex the midle.
You want to bind the horse to the out side of the turn.
Dose that make sence.

live for the moment.

You have two long sides and a smal half cirle like a hot dog. My trainer uses food alot when telling us to do something. We do icecream cones and hamburger buns. Dont ask me why she picks food. HA HA she must all ways be hungry.

Another reason your horse could be raising it's head at the show is because it is tense and/or alert. When a horse is relaxed, it will carry it's head lower.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

Its all the time, shes always carried her head high. The has a short chunky neck so its natural for her. That is a good theory, but even on a calm trail ride, its always high. No, shes not working from her hind quarters, but we've been working on that lots cause shes really front heavy:)

When a horse collects its not just collecting its head. A head set should be an after product, an effect of correct training. There is alot that goes into western pleasure and how to get a horse to collect. If you gave us more information we could possibly help

contiue to work on getting her back and using her hindquarters more. you also need to work on flexing and lateral movements. Get her soft and supple.
