Thanks for all of the critique guys! I know this is more of a training question, and I will post a new thread there if I don't get any replies, but after riding Simba today, I was just wondering what advice anyone has for getting a lazy horse to move? He's VERY slow and quiet, which is sort of good, but not when he won't go any faster than trot! To be honest, I'm not the strongest or firmest of riders, I prefer to ride with soft, sympathetic hands and minimal use of crops or spurs or anything like that, but Simba is just amazingly tolerant and will not go any faster without heaps of encouragement from both my legs and the crop. So, any tips on how to get him to move faster? He's not in pain or anything that I can tell, he seems quite relaxed and just happy to lumber about. Don't be afraid to say anything, I know I'm a relative beginner when it comes to horse training. I usually would talk to my trainer first, but she's not available until next week and I'd like to get some other opinions too. Thanks in advance!
