One of my horses is a 6 y/o mustang gelding who, up until now, has mainly been just been ridden on the trails. However I have discovered he can jump - I have seen him jump in the pasture and we have jumped logs and natural obstacles on the trails. The problem is that, under saddle, he is the LAZIEST horse I have EVER encountered - he is getting slightly better with consistent work but I am wondering, can a lazy horse ever really do well in Eventing? He is one of the most athletic and most well put together horses I have seen in a long time, but he has absolutely no work ethic whatsoever. The other pony I've been working with is the complete opposite - he can be a hot mess at times but he LOVES to jump. My siblingseEvent their horses and they are pretty much the same way - with tons of spirit and go. Is there any hope for my lazy horse? :)
