I ride a horse at the barn and she doesn't turn until i really force her. Any tips on what to do?
Supple her by using lots of leg with a supportive hand that encourages her to know you want to turn left/right. Lots of circle work: if you are cantering down the long side then ask for a flexion doesn’t matter if you chop and change, keep her mind on the job of “ok we might be turning now” so go straight then do a 10m circle and repeat a few times just don’t always be going straight or doing the same thing. What I have grown up with is inside leg to outside hand using the inside rein to ask for the turn and determine how small you want it.
How can you see your distance to a jump? I find myself struggling with that.
I try to work over poles as much as I can either related or not. The more you engage your eye and the repetition of the poles the easier it is when you apply it to fences. Just try to keep your minds fresh and not do circle after circle to include the pole, make it so it’s just in the way of your line.
It took 7 people to try and catch my daughter's horse in his camp which is quite big. It took them more than 40 minutes! How do you teach him not to run away?
My mother had a very smart stock horse that was also a pain to catch but was always easy with persuasion. I.e. bread! One shake of the bread bag and she would be all over you like a fly on a summers day😂 in other words food is always the answer🙋🏽
