    Encoraging a horse to move forwards help


    This is my first post. I have had my horse on loan for 2 months now. He's a beautiful grey, 16.2hh Hanavarian x, 11years old. His owner has put him on loan due to him not been quite forward going enough for the level she competes at. She has changed his diet many times, had many lessons and still he does not change.

    Unfortunatly I am having the same problem. He is very hard work. I currently ride him in the school with a schooling whip which I normally use on his hindquaters, using it does not normally assist. He has varied work, a mixture of jumping, schooling and hacking.

    He is forward going and responsive on a hack tho?! CAn anyone make any suggestions?? (i'm not an experienced rider) I do not wish to use spurs.

    I am having a little bit of trouble understanding, he is forward on the flat but not over jumps?

    Do you mean hack as in hackamore, or as in riding on the flat?
