Chloe, anything south of vertical is overbending. IMO, you are expecting too much form a green broke 4 year old. Being green, your horse is just learning balance and impulsion. Pulling her head to an unnatural position is the wrong way to go.
Give your pony time to get the basics down pat before working on a perfect vertical headset. Worry more about aids and collection.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
