    hi tash, jacquie smith here with a Question ,
    how do i keep my horses head down through the whole time i am riding a test?

    i can get him to put it down for a bitΒ  but as soon as i come to the corner or a circle or even a gait change up the head goes.
    we have been working on this for a while now and yes i have a through bred.
    also am not sure about exactly how much contact to have . some times i feel like i am holding him down and other times he justs leves it down and it feels light in my hands.
    many thanks
    jacquie smith
    will see you soon

    I ride a lesson horse who is used by a lot of beginners because he has a nice temperament, well let’s face it – he’s lazy. I am an intermediate rider, but I have problems getting energy from the rear of this horse. He likes to lope instead of a true canter, and he sometimes four beats. My trainer had us using ground poles to get him to pick up his feet better and engage his back (and mine) with some success. I will play with his back legs tickle them with a crop to get him to pick them up, but I am not mounted at the time so it’s hard to carry that back to the saddle. I do use the crop as an extension of my hand and try to engage his rear. Any tips or exercises you can recommend? He is a mustang, so probably quarter horse stock, around 7 years old.

    My horse drifts out when I canter to the left. My coach tells me to block him with my outside rein but I am still having a problem. Any suggestions?

      Hi Allison,

      I will make sure I pass your question onto Natasha so that it can be answered in the next available Your Riding Success TV. However, this is covered in much more detail in our Riding Program – there is a whole section on cantering, one on the seat, and a whole heap on using your outside rein!!

      Have a fabulous day! πŸ™‚

    My horse canter whenever she wants to. When I am in a trot she will just start to canter. I am having a lot of trouble. Please help me.

    Hi Natasha,
    I have a question opposite of jacquie smith; I am riding a horse that just came off Hunter Jumper circuit, he does the opposite, keeping his head down at times so much I am afraid of too much force to bring it back up on his mouth; he actually looks like he wants to be a Western Pleasure horse but was a winning Jumper. It is so frustrating because I can’t focus on my seat because I am too busy working with the challenge of keeping his head up. Why would he be doing this? Oh and it’s only in a trot and walk, canters beautifully head level.
    Thanks so much in advance.

    Hi guys I was booked into the competition workshop in 2014 but it was cancelled. I received the discs etc thanks. You said that if you were having another workshop I could join in. Are you having another competition success workshop this year? I attended the fearless workshop thought it was great.

      Hi Penny,

      So glad you liked the FearLESS workshop!! We haven’t go a competition workshop planned at this stage – only the goalsetting workshop at the end of the year if that’s something you were interested in πŸ™‚
