So, I have finally treated myself (and the pony) to a Pessoa. He has had one on before and the transformation was brilliant!!

He is rising 5, and very much on the forehand. He struggles with canter leads (particularly on right lead) and needs to learn how to engage his hind end more - which I am hoping will improve the forehand and canter lead issue)

The Pessoa came with instructions of different positions and when to use them, but how long should I be using position 1 (long and low) for, before stepping it up a level?

I am thinking the level I want to work towards is one that teaches him to lift his front end up (the position name escapes me)

Any tips or hints, greatly appreciated!!
