The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt - Hellen Keller
Do you have any tips to refresh a horse's memory? My horse used to do flying changes with his old owner, but he hasn't done it in about a year.
Try to do them across the diagonal. Make sure you are asking him in a very clear way. You may also have to tap him with a stick on the new outside butt so he “hops” into the change.
Do you have tips for a pony who is very heavy on my left rein? Even when I’m turning to the right she’s still very heavy and it hurts my arm.
When riding if she is giving you 3 pounds of weight/pressure in the reins then you match that in the reins with 3 pounds of weight/pressure then you double the weight in you leg. So you put 6 pounds of weight in you legs. This will force her to move up into the contact without running. If this doesn’t help then work on circles getting her to bend and become moveable and fluid
