    In my experience, a horse chips consistently if A) he is not in a balanced canter or B) if he is sore. Make sure your flatwork is up to snuff and that his canter is rhythmical and light before you...

    I am glad she is recovered enough to be back to the horse world! She was a much respected horseman and her accident was indeed a tragedy.

    As long as you still have a hold of your reins, I don't see why your old method would be dangerous. Whichever one you can do smoothly without grabbing the horse in the mouth would be the one I would...

    I am a big believer in the use of gymnastics. Try a couple of short bounces then a one stride with an oxer at the end. It should encourage him to use his back more which will make him rounder.
