Another Green Horse Class. “Texas. Behind The Vertical” Part #1

This is Texas, our newest green horse. He is being ridden by Ale Brown. Texas is a nice quiet horse, but has decided that he needs to keep his nose to his chest, or what is known as behind the vertical. He was not taught this, but seems to think this is how he should go. In this series you will see how we teach him to stretch his neck longer and open his throat latch so that he is not behind the vertical. As a result, he will change the way he is moving and responding to Ale.
