A fault commonly observed during dressage tests at all levels is the tendency for a horse to come behind the rider's contact.
If this is the case, comments you may find on your score sheets could include "overbent," "behind the contact," and "behind the vertical," which is commonly abbreviated to BTV.
So, in this podcast episode, we will cover what behind the vertical is, reasons why your horse is behind the vertical, how to correct this, and more.
(Please note: This is an updated and expanded version of our previous 'How to Stop Your Horse From Coming Behind the Vertical' episode)
