Primo can be an ultimate klutz... we've run into the wall, mounting block, tripped on nothing.... yea... he's blond. Lol.
I find a lot of this has to do with focus. If I have him working forward and change direction a lot he doesn't faceplant so much. We do work on poles and cavalettis as well.
There is hope, with all his Special Ed moments he jumps 3' pretty well... just not xrails.
If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong
And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse
