I have two problems with Blue, one is that he is VERY busy with his head, he goes from one extreme to another contantly. One minute his head is as high as his neck will allow it, and when I try to correct that he goes behind the bit. Anybody have any suggestions for what can help so he gets on the bit?
I have tried lots of long and low to get him to relax as I think some of the behind the bit stuff is a nervous issue, however when I do that we have our second problem, he starts to throw his shoulders all over the place unless I keep pretty steady contact on him, people must think my horse is drunk half the time! Collect the reins up again so he stops throwing his shoulders around and we are back to up and down with the head. He is current on his teeth, and is in a three piece full cheek.
