It is not correct when the horse is behind the vertical.
I have a horse that tends to go behind the vertical. It hurts me, it gives me gray hair and it makes the training extremely difficult.
We all know that it is not correct when the horse goes behind the vertical, avoids the bit and are curling. But what is it in the training that causes this to happen? There are a lot of horses working like this.
We often see really good horses in the championships for young horses doing it. We see the jumpers do it and we see horses do it for the Olympics and World Cup dressage. But it is still not correct and we all know that.
Often it happens to lighted, very forward and nervous horses. Many times the horse begins to do this because the rider holds back with a hard hand. Or the young horse has been trained with tight tightening columns. It can also happen for horses who are riding with sliding pillars. Or for horses that are being ridden with poultry or very thin bites. But it can simply also happen because people do not understand the importance of getting the horse to work over the back. In the beginning of the training the horse must learn to stretch down and forth.
