Sorry I guess I'm not as cool as you with your amazingly bred TB's...
Tango's great great grandsire is Secretariat so he has a bloodline of being heavily raced, the same jockey that rode Zenyatta, John Smith, rode Tango as well so I think he was raced with a lot of pushiness to win. I don't exactly know how he was, but I just recently got him in July.
I bought him some calming vitamin oil from FinishLine to see if that helps but I am going to try adding beet pulp and maybe a food with less molasses in it and still the rice bran supplement. I'm going to finish what I have first though.
And I like to go fast is what I'm saying, I'm not going to hinder a horse from what he is biologically and genetically shaped to do - legs. I will on the other hand, make him work all days of the week, in the arena and then WALK him on the trails. Then maybe 1 day out of the week I will let him run. Although I do find it weird when I'm in a hackamore and bareback he will stop on a dime and not pace or anything. I think I might just get a more durable hackamore and just start riding him in that and start from scratch. Then I will go into a bit, maybe a french link D-ring or something and see how he likes that.
These things will take time to tell if they work but I just want to make sure he's on the right food, and workout regime before I go assuming that he's crazy and selling him. He's my second baby and I love him, I want to work it out with him, not go and sell him because he's too hard to deal with ya know?
