Horse & Hound - - Fix It -

Prac­tise, prac­tise, prac­tise. Make sure your horse is square be­fore mount­ing and dis­mount­ing, and halt be­fore each break. The more you halt squarely, the more likely it is to be­come a habit.

Sit up tall and check you are sit­ting straight and your weight is even on both sides.

Ev­ery time you ad­just the halt, walk for­wards not back­wards, so your horse is think­ing of go­ing for­wards to the next move­ment.

Keep your legs wrapped around your horse dur­ing the halt and teach him to move for­wards when you re­lease. This helps to get a pos­i­tive, pow­er­ful move-off.
