Lame in the mouth

| Category: DID YOU KNOW? |

sr05 123x300 Lame in the mouthA horse can ‘go lame in the mouth’ when:

  • the outside rein is too long with no contact
  • the inside rein is too short and stiff

Therefore the stride is shorter on the inside.

To correct, ride shoulder-in. This helps to improve the correct lateral bending and encourages the horse to take a contact with the bit on the outside. And it encourages the inside hind leg to engage well forwards.

Sometimes this fault is easier to correct by interrupting shoulder-in, riding a volte, and then proceeding with a new shoulder-in.
