What I want and what I am looking for is clean, regular gaits with a lower headset and relaxed movement. A horse that will keep its (slowish) speed and simply be a pleasure to ride.
The question quite simply is: how to go about getting to that point?
My horse is barely ridden. So I'm starting from zero. What's the first thing to do? Get her go forward in a straight and relaxed manner? Then what? Long and low? Circles?
I know it's a huge field, but getting a WP trainer is not an option.
If you happen to know a great WP focused training book that's easy to get hold of, that'd be great too.
A list is fine, if you don't feel like expanding. Any help appreciated.
