Due to an underlying back problem, my mare has not been able to work to her full potential resulting in quite a few major schooling problems. One of these is her hollowing her back and not working on the bit in a soft supple outline. Now that she has had her course of treatment and is a good as new, I want to attempt to try and refresh her memory of how to work correctly on the bit (reducing any further back problems). Does anybody have any experience of re-schooling a horse to work on the bit after going for a long period of time working incorrectly? There is lots of information regarding how to get a horse working on the bit, but personal experience helps a lot aswell as doing research. Any methods/ thoughts or advice would be highly appreciated. Many thanks.

Lot's of walk to trot transitions have always helped me! And lot's of shapes. Keep moving and you'll find the head just drops on it's own.
