Short version! Dressage is the basis for Working Equitation and is primarily what I ride with my fjord gelding. He is 5 and is early in his training but coming along nicely; we plan to start showing next year in the introductory trials.
I have been riding him two handed in a full cheek slow twist snaffle. I would like to start working to get us riding one handed as it lends itself better to the Ease of Handling trial of WE where there are obstacles. The third trial is a Speed trial with obstacles.
I am hoping to get some advice on transition off a snaffle to a bit that lends itself to one handed riding. My dressage trainer is admittedly not well versed in this area so any insight, bit recommendations, resources etc around this would be wonderful!
The video that got me interested:
Rewatching, she isn’t riding one handed the whole time, but her horse is response to both ways.
