BITTING ADVICE PLEASE xx at the moment she is in a full cheek double jointed snaffle with a copper lozenge in the middle. I am finding her generally too strong. she's is only 5. xx
People are so quick to say sort your flatwork but coming from experience, some horses generally are little tanks and I know I would rather have soft hands with a strong bit rather than hauling at her mouth cause she’s in a snaffle! Try a Waterford, makes it hard for them to lean on :) and they come with lots of different options ie loose ring, 3 ring, pelham to suit different horses.
My horse has a very rough/fast trot and I find it nearly impossible to keep my leg still (my heels are down but that doesn't seem to help) any ideas to help?
I’d be a bit wary getting a lesson from a lot of people on here saying they are riding instructors 🐸☕️
I bought a mare that is fantastic but her jumps are very strong and I created a bad habit that I pull the reigns in the middle of the jump so I can stay on, any advice to stop it?
Do not hold on with your knees😂 work on you core and hold on with your lower leg/heel wrapped around her sides. Also build up calve muscles - heel raises on a step/ledge are really good.
