new to dressage and need advice
I am new to dressage and riding a green, unpredictable pony. He is not young but has somewhat of an abusive past so it can be hard to get him relaxed and on the bit. He moves beautifully when he is relaxed though, but I struggle with this a lot. Whenever I am riding him I feel like I am constantly battling for him not to run and to keep his head own. I have only been riding him for a couple months and have come a long way with him (slowly). I just wish it were easier to get him more relaxed and on the bit. Is there any advice you can offer me? Should I just keep working at it and one day it'll click?
