I was wondering what are some ways you keep your horses slow and relaxed at a canter when jumping at a show? :)

If you are not realaved then you horse is not and really means it's going to go forward because you have kids this and that causes pressure to the horse may think you're asking to go forward but you're really not so then you pull on it and then he gets nervous or
Pull back a little with the reins to ask to slow down but keep leg pressure on so he/she doesn't break to a trot; sit tall, don't let them pull you down, if they pull you down they are in control
I will do a have half put pressure and then release the pressure when they stay steady and collected😉
