What does it mean when the horse "drops it shoulder" and "falls in" and how can you help the horse not to do it?

try raising your inside hand to give them more balance and try sitting the horse up a little bit
if a horse drops in or leans its shoulder, it means that on circles and when bending, its weight is mostly on the inside, causing the horse to become off balanced. you can fix this by raising your inside hand, using inside leg, and making sure you're sitting balance and tall
