How can I make my lazy horse more responsive?
By Your Horse
Counting your transition strides is a great exercise to sharpen up a lazy horse. On a 20m circle, canter for six strides, trot for three, then canter for six again. Repeat this transition exercise on both reins and you should really see a different. Be firm with your horse and don’t accept slow, lazy transitions.
