Thanks ill have to trry that! I have been working just letting him trot freely - he is weird sometimes not sure why this could be but as soon as I collect him he bobs his head like he is lame?? Any ideas? I ask for a bend - push him forward and he bobs his head like he isnt sure if hte wants to contact with me or not .Hope its a training issue - he doesnt seem in paain when I ride him out.
I started back to square one because of this - I notice my posting was short and I wasnt getting off his back letting him trot out nice. So that past few weeks I have been working on transitions and my posting. But as soon as I ask him to collect he does the head bob and it irritates me - hope it just takes practice!!
