Jacoby is now undersaddle!! Woohoo, For those of you who don't know him, he is a 3yo RMH. We started trail riding the other day (we don't have any arena or round pen.) Here is my problem:
When we walk he is great and listens really well. When I ask for a gait faster, he trips trying to pace and then falls into a trot that can get VERY bouncy. Today he was so excited he tried to canter! but he tripped doing that too! Is this normal?
What should I do when he trips up?
I don't want him to be a trotting horse all the time, I want him to know how to gait, even if it is a pace for now. Horse do I get him to stop falling over his own feet?
