Equestrian for 7 years
I have used to be western Reiner/Barrel Racer and at the canter he is really hard to stop. Me and my trainer tried a stronger bit but he only pulled harder. What do I do?
I would work on some exercises to get his head softer but I would not recommend using a stronger bit
What type of riding do you do? English or Western?
I ride western pleasure and I sometimes have trouble with keep my free arm still while I lope and it creates too much momentum. Any ideas on how to keep my arm still?
What I do is just lay my hand in my thigh and if that doesn’t work just try two hands on the reins until you get used to it
