4 year old MFT with 3mo Professional Training ridden in very light snaffle and roping saddle in pasture by rider who is a trainer of quarter horses

Question: I have a mare that paces most on flat ground getting to up and down hill she is alittle high headed with nose out, she had some pretty rough hands on her mouth so right now when you get on bit head up. I would like to know anything that might help even some details on shoes

From Panelists Liz

Since this horse has a history of heavy hands in the past . It sounds like it is just protecting it's mouth from past experience. I might just go back to some good basic training but do it with a side pull and reteach this way .
