Ask @trozier : Hi, what is your best advice/exercise to get a horse to engage the backend and keep an active step in trot and canter?

Hi Bess,

It’s pure dressage, you need to work on the horse’s self-carriage. I recommend basics dressage exercises like shoulder-in, quarters-in, haunches-out. The kind of exercise that need to be done on a regular basis. It also depends on the horse, for some of them it’s easier.
