  2. Are you hearing us?

    You're getting a ton of good advice here, OP, but I'm not sure you're hearing it. Or willing to hear it.

    YES! I use a driving rein from time to time. My horse absolutely *loves* it when I do; the difference in him is so striking. It's like he smiles, takes a deep breath and says thank you.

    Um, hi? <waves>

    I am going, but I am nervous about standing out like a weirdo all weekend; I ride hunters. Not even field hunters. Show hunters. And equitation. In California. YEAH I KNOW.

    Are you sure it's a training or riding issue?

    It could be a soundness issue only showing up in softer/deeper/whatever footing and smaller circles. Could be pain driving the disobedience.

    Edit to add preface.

    I get frustrated with the tired old adage that "people today are too soft/sensitive."

    Maybe it's just me, but I caught a bit of a weird tone from you, OP. Do your students feel "pushed" to show? Over time this will cause an awkward dynamic and undermine their trust in you.
