Dressage Solutions: Keep the Horse’s Outside Shoulder from Bulging Out as You Turn

Try this tip from Jeremy Beale.

To keep the horse’s outside shoulder from bulging out as you turn …

Imagine your horse is a car skidding on ice and you
must turn in the direction of the skid to counteract it.
So, if your horse’s shoulder bulges out during a turn,
it may be helpful to counter-flex him slightly (steer into
the skid) to rebalance and keep him following the curved
line.—Jeremy Beale
