Dear all, Think this carries on from Mannering and Horse Confidence Issue.
How ever when I ride my horse doesnt seem to matter which one they all do the same accept some more so. I leave stable area and other horses and go out a certain way before I start to feel some tension or bracing I do something ( chg bend a little or ask for more bend ) that checks to see if there is some tension building aswell. Usually it is not far from home. I focus ahead and try to keep birdie with me by giving all my thought to where we are going. Then when we get there would you rest, and try again after a few mouth fulls of grass before there is tension or if okay keep going. Does mannering come into it aswell in this part of ride can you ask for focus and keep attention on me not away. Correct me if I am wrong but the mannering is going well at stable should I be trying it further away from home in more stressful situations for the horse.
