    Medium canter help

    How do I help a horse extend his frame in medium canter? My horses only 16.1 but very short coupled with big paces. When I ask him to extend he spends more time in the air rather than lengthening us frame going forwards.

    Who turns out on this ground?

    After getting my two in today I have asked YO to leave my two in. They may as well have been turned out on a car park. Am I just paranoid? But with a 20 year old with a front suspensory sprain and a competition horse I am a bit worried.
