So I have an nine yrs old appendix quarter gelding. I have had him since he was two, took him to horse shows and got him used to crowds and scary things, we go on trail rides and do alot of training for the brain things. I really bought him for barrels, he's a big leg horse with short body. He can really stretch and turn. My problem is it feels like he loafing, I just can never seem to get him to run. I know he can do because keyhole is the fast game he does, he's great in poles till we run home same thing with barrels. I need help, I want to actually compete instead of lope around.
