Hey guys it's been a very long time since I've been here. Lately I've been wanting to ride Cowboy western. I've gotten to the point of having a nice slow jog and he drops his head when we get to that pace, and I just want some tips on this switch.
I have a western bridle, egg butt French link. He works really well in that, better than my D ring snaffle which I use when I ride English.
Yesterday I worked with him just at a jog, had to refresh his memory because I hadn't ridden him in about a month so he was a little rusty. I was also trying to drop his head, and after a few times of us butting heads (not literally!) he was finally getting it. Not so much at the jog, but it was better than me not ever teaching him.
I would like your guy's tips on how to slow down his canter, I've worked with him but it's not the speed I would like. And I would also like to learn how to have him drop his head and get on the bit at the canter and get better at the trot. Thank you!!
