    This season our first field has been really small and I've been riding behind the field leader. I ask when we go out if anyone else wants that position and the answer is always "no". I like to...

    Some very good advice here, thanks!

    Leslie, I realize getting off the forehand isn't true collection, which is why I put quotes around it. I don't know any short-hand term for it tho. (Although...

    I have fallen into the habit of asking for canter at the halt. I'm not really sure why as when I was on lesson horses we always asked from sitting trot. But, anyway, when I am asking for a simple...
