I am constantly amazed at how the very, very small things make such a huge, huge difference. Here’s one of those such things.
If you are struggling to get a soft flowing travers (Haunches In), turn your inside hand over slightly (like turning a key). It must be very subtle so as not to draw the horse to the inside or bend the horse’s neck … but OMG! What a difference it makes.
Other essential elements are forwardness and ensuring that you are not crooked with your upper body, but try the hand thing. It’s a gem!
