How to Calm Down a Speedy Horse?
I usually ride a lot of faster, more energetic horses. I can control them fine (most of the time haha, I have my fair share of incidents every now and then) but controlling them is one thing, actually calming them down is another. For example, there are some horses who see a jump and absolutely lose their mind. While I am able to keep a decent pace, hold them back, and get a smooth jump they still want to go, go, go. Is there a way to get the horse to relax and willingly calm down without having it be a constant battle?
