Tip of The Month 


Is your horse heavy in your hand??


The horses response from your hand down the rein to his mouth should be a light clear and concise one.



Try riding on the flat holding your reins upside down (the riders thumb pointing towards the horses mouth not the buckle on the reins).



This action will make the riders hand become light, and in turn should encourage the horse to lighten his head carriage.



Happy Riding Guys!!!!!!!
