Just after posting on your topic, another Forum Member posted that she was having a similar problem with her Arabian mare. Instead if typing the first post all over again, I referred her to your topic, and added a few additional ideas that occurred to me after I had made the first post, comments which you might also find useful, if you have not already noticed her topic. What might be particularly useful to you is that you can practice tensing & un-tensing groups of muscles without being on a horse, so that when you try to use this technique on a horse, your body already has muscle memory to do this without having to think your way through it on the horse.
