How do you guys get your horse head to do a collected canter?
If you mean “frame” , it does not come from the neck/head. It actually comes from the hind end meaning lots and lots of experienced leg and seat. Which comes with contact/connection (BUT don’t “pull” your horses head down)
Some people have told me that turnout blankets are bad for your horse because they stop the hair on your horse from growing? What are your guys opinions ?
I blanket my horse in the winter and in rainy weather. If the blanket is not properly fitted it can be dangerous or uncomfortable for the horse. The blanket replaces the winter coat. I also only Blanket my horse with rugs that have a high Denier thread count. If the inside of the blanket gets wet that can cause rainrot. I do live in Canada Btw lol. (My opinion 😊)
