I have a 6 year old throughbred off the track that I have been working with for 2 years.
We are now trying to get our walk canter transitions. He goes into the canter at the trot no problom, but he can't figure how to roll back and use his hind end to start. I have used a crop to create alot of energy at the walk and then relese him, but he just runs through the trot then canters. He gets his leads no problom. I have started lounging him with side reins as this helps alot with his rounding out his back. Any suggestions?
