It was apparent to us the day Bella was born that we had something pretty special in this filly. Her natural headset and collection were amazing, right from birth. However, like many horses with this strong vertical flex naturally, she tends to be less able to bend laterally.
As she has matured, Bella has continued to be a very nicely collected horse, but clearly favors one side to the other by way of balance and weight bearing. During the reduced riding season, while we are forced to work on more ground work than saddle, I intend to strive to correct this left/right imbalance to straighten and even her development side to side. This should allow her to improve her lateral flex as well and generally improver her balance under saddle.
