    Lateral work controls the shoulders/straightness/ and connection to the outside rein. Because of this the horse gets a better connection to the rein, and hence will follow the reins forward/down/out.

    It's not about the need for a r.m. imho, the bit acceptance is problematic in the newer ones and that causes a more jamming behind canter. The lower/fixed hands increase the hollowing. Imho the...

    As you do, tactfully. Allowing the horse to remain lightly on the bit, squared and quiet. (And NEVER with the whip in the hand). In uniform on can do a military salute.

    If you are an eventer, then just think: could I jump a fence from the balance that the horse is in at this very minute? If not the horse is not literally up to the bit and balanced and active. I...

    Good free walk is about the quality of the walk, not how low the horse goes (which can make it very difficult to take back to connect/working with bit acceptance (or later on the bit).

    So, ask for...

    The pix of both its shorter is better, and the shortened snaffle is definitely a better fit, but it is too narrow (and the one pix shows the snaffle outside the weymouth). Also, a better fit for...

    Yep, not about the horse's welfare or learning any longer. It's about winning and perception.

    Wouldn't that then be the organizers, not the USEF? And how is a prejudicial when the prime intention is really supporting the USEF's rules is the good of the horse? (As well as after, not during,...

    He was done judging AND had the welfare of the horses/riders and judges in mind. Is that prejusticed against the spirit of the rules? Or is that being a horseman which wants the best for the...

    In a working trot horses should swing freely forward and hence they should track up. Lengthening is about covering more ground which comes from slightly more thrust and be perhaps a smidge longer in...

    Part is fear (mouth) and part is out of balance. Have you tried working with neck rope or reins onto a caveson or micklem with bit hooks attached? That takes the fear (on the bars away).

    It doesn't lift the bit, it keeps the bit from acting on the bars. Take a flash, remove flash strap, add one that connects to the bit (acts rather like the clips of a micklem).
