What are your tips on always getting on the right diagonal?
One thing I found (very much like what Caoimhe said) was looking at their leg, getting on the right diagonal, then on the wrong diagonal and finding out what it feels like for you and you’re horse so you can then eventually identify it straightaway 😊😊
Do you have any tips to build the top line?
Teaching the horse to stretch through his back, engage his hind end and bring his hind legs under him on the lunge and under saddle, as well as stretching his neck out. And make sure they’re moving forward!!Once he begins to work through his back and doesn’t work hollow you could start lunging him over raised trot poles (one side raised). Keep in mind these suggestions are for if you do not have hilly terrain for turnout or work. Remember it takes one year to establish the top line in a horse and to build the muscle and two years to bring them into collection, you will not see heaps of improvement after a short while of work.
Are there any feed supplements or anything of that kind to help with coat shine and health?
I find 1 tablespoon of coconut oil helps for coat shine, and if you add 1/4 cup of aloe vera juice and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar helps with their coat as well and is good for their gut as long as it’s not overdosed
