Part 1

In the category of broke horses at the Wendy Potts clinic there were the usual things you'd expect to see. There were horses down on the forehand. Horses ignoring riders' legs. Horses just not paying attention. Horses not driving off their hind ends. Horses locked up in the shoulders and/or ribcage. Horses heavy in the bridle.

All of these issues, of course, come back to going forward. A horse that is going forward properly wouldn't be doing any of these things. The solution lies in what is preventing that particular horse from going forward like it should.
