IF YOU ARE NOT STRAIGHT I ASK TWO QUESTIONS:
- ARE YOU GIVING THE SAME SIGNAL ON EACH REIGN TO YOUR HORSE?
- ARE YOU CAUSING HIM TO BE SORE?
Is it surprising that this horse falls out on the leftt reign and struggles with bending evenly?
Assessments on the horse are critical to see what is going on, however the problem is often deeper-seated than horse issues (of things such as saddle/ teeth/ shoeing/ horses preferred leg/ horse injury). More often there are issues with the rider’s posture and mechanics. Detailed specific riding instruction will definitely help improve skill and riding technique, however off the horse work to really look at what is going on with your body is essential.
