Hey guys. I need help on bringing my horse along. I have her at the trot but she carries her head so low. And if I hold the reins tighter she throws her head around alot. Any tips?

Maybe you could try lunging her in the chambon and see how she reacts, and then maybe ride her in it
Hi @melindafordrider the vet comes out in a couple days to check her legs and teeth. So well see how that goes. Thanks :)
Hello Lindsey,
Are your sure your horse's mouth doesn't hurt? Maybe she need a dentist check-up?
If not, try to have a really fixed hand that doesn't move during trot and that follows her neck movement during walk and canter.
Make sure to always maintain a good impulsion so she can carry her herself.
Be very strong in your back when you ask her to lift her head and keep her in front of your legs.
Good luck, hope it helps :)
