Hi Martyna,

For warming up flatting as well as jumping I like to let them have a loose rein. At first they may keep their head up a bit but eventually their head goes down and this is great for stretching their back and warming them up. I always find if I let them do this for the first 5-10 minutes they are much easier to work after.
