    There was a time where USET provided free education for those who were gifted riders (they also provided the horses to ride). Sadly that time has past, its about the income.

    Squeeze? No. Touch, yes. Not more aid, but clearer ones (supported with a touch of a whip, if needed).

    Forward is more a state of balance than anything else.

    Going forward in a steady tempo into both reins evenly IS the first order of business. Then the question is: does the horse really know the rein effects?

    Here are the US rules/directives, they are the basis for training which sustains and develops the quality/purity of the gaits: https://www.usef.org/documents/ruleBook/2014/08-DR.pdf

    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.

    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...
