    Thanks guys.
    Yes I know she has her reins short but right now she is still using the neck a bit to balance and keep her hands steady. We are slowly working on her bringing her hands up off the neck and once she does that she lets her reins out so she can sit up taller.
    Thanks everyone for the comments. I really like the 7-7-7 idea.

    Oh one pretty good one is to get her to close her eyes and listen to your instructions on where to go and turn round a course of poles. She has to steer really carefully and listen to you closely to get through the course. (i recommend only doing this one at a walk)

    i think she would really benefit from lunge lessons so she can concentrate more on herself than the horse

    as she really needs to learn to sit up an doing a lesson on the lunge she can do exercises with her armsto help her sit up an have a better position

    Thanks, I know she needs to sit up but like I said she is still using the neck to help support her but we are working on her building up the muscle and ability to lift up her hands and bring her body back. Those pics are a few weeks old and she has progressed a good amount in that short time.
