- Horse's body is straight rather than evenly bent around the rider's inside leg.
- Loss of rhythm and impulsion.
- The rider pulling on the inside rein creating too much neck bend rather than using the outside leg to correct.
- Inside leg too far back. Too much outside leg creating too steep an angle, greater than 30 degrees and blocking the horse.
- Losing control of the forehand so it no longer travels along the outside track.
- Rider looking behind at the horse's quarters.
- Rider collapsing his/her inside hip.
- The horse losing impulsion and rhythm.
- Tip: asking for less bend will improve straightness and activity.
