Re: 'Self Carriage' or 'Behind the bit'

Thanks for your reply Trudi - I think I am on the right track ... funny about you saying how it often looks better than it feels - we did a little bit of canter work in our last session with Denise and when she asked me how it had felt I said "ok, but ...." however, later on watching the v...

'Self Carriage' or 'Behind the bit'

Not sure how many of you on here will have a point of view but I will ask anyway as I'm not sure where else to discuss this ...
