    I tried to get him to canter just straight today but he trotted faster. We were next to the road so I just made him keep trotting for a long ways

When he set back I lunged him good and he never did it a third time. But the third time I put a 25 foot line on him and tied it so it'd give a few feet if he set back. So hopefully that's through with! He didn't give me any attitude riding today so that's good.

    Ok- at this point I think its time to call a professional to help you or have your mum help you out with him- sounds like its gettin dangerous.

    Well he didn't do it again And he's never done it before. So I don't know what the deal was. We have had him for 4 years. I've dealt with setting back with my Arabian and he doesn't do it anymore. I just tied the rope like I did to where it would let him go back about 6-8 feet but not come undone. And he doesn't set back anymore.

    Rode him for a couple of hours today. He's in a full cheek snaffle still. He's starting to soften up in the face and collect a little. Still need to build that muscle. I have him side passing to the left a little too.
