How to engage the hind end riding western
And forgive me for being stupid. My SO rides western and I'm still learning. He has trouble getting either of his horses heads down, and definitely never has them engaged. I rode one the other day and doing it the "english" way, I had him engaging his hind end etc. To do this, I had him working from back to front, using leg into my hand.
How is this accomplished in the western world? SO Doesnt seem to have much luck with what he's doing, but he doesn't want to have a lot of contact with their mouths.
