View Full Version : My mare leans!

Oct. 28, 2011, 06:08 PM
And its driving me crazy! She wont pick up her inside shoulder to save her life! We have done a lot of counter bending and she doesn't lean through that, but on a normal 20m she starts dropping her inside shoulder. I have tried tapping her with my spur, but that only works for a minute... Does anyone have an advice on how to fix my leaner?

I have to constantly remind myself, inside leg (more forward than i naturally want to put it) outside rein. Inside leg, outside rein.
I also do lots of transitions between the gaits and get him paying attention.

Are you dropping your shoulder? If I do that, the mare does, too. And second inside leg to outside rein.
