Help with ground driving, there is no moving forward.. literally
So... I tried ground driving a few weeks ago. It did not go nearly as well as I thought it would. I expected Moe to at least move a few steps forward, but that was not at all the case.
Moe has been ground driven before, but since then we have him very well trained on the ground with Parelli Natural Horsemanship methods. It pretty much goes against what ground driving is. He will either try and pivot away, or back up into me. I was just using a halter, then to leadropes that were long enough to stand a few feet behind him with. I also had a bareback pad to hang the excess rope through so it wouldn't drag on the ground. But he did not take one step forward, just kept on shimmying around in confusion. Obviously he has forgot his ground driving training, but I can't blame him seeing as it was 4 years since the last time.
Any tips? I've tried all sorts of things, some with a theory behind it, some stupid. But I just can't seem to get him to go forward. There will be no progress updates as another snow storm just blew threw and left another gift for us. -.- He does not listen to clucking, just silence and body signals for the most part. Pretty much it takes me walking forward and him following me is the only way to get him to go forward other than lunging. I've tried pushing on his butt, and that didn't even work. He either stood their or side stepped. Bless his heart for not kicking me in the face, but I am having an issue with this, because I would really like to train him to at least ground drive. If he doesn't work with that then I can promise you all I will not hook him up to a cart. I may be a little stupid, but I wouldn't hook an untrained horse up to a cart.
I really would rather not beat the crap out of him to make him go forward.. Actually, I'm not going to at all. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know I am probably doing alot wrong, but I just need to hear what I should do, not what I did wrong.
