Okay, helpful advice...

Take the time and effort and "be bothered" to make an attempt to make yourself understood and you'll get a lot more help.

This thread has 358 views and only 7 people have responded. How many of those other 351 views do you think were people who might have had advice but didn't want to take the time to try to help someone who "couldn't be bothered" to try to write in an intelligible manner?

And with that, I'll leave you.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

OK, time to play the horse's game only you get to change the rules without telling him. When he suddenly dives for the center of the ring, don't fight him but encourage him to keep going and if you have to really encourage him, even threaten with a crop then work him in small tight circles, until you feel the resistance going out of him. Keep him at the trot as you move toward the wall again. He'll do it again, so just ride the tight circles again. About the 3rd time he should be figuring it out that instead of getting out of work you make it harder for him. When he passes that point and offers no resistance, do allow him to walk. That is his reward. If you can ride him the next day and see how he is. He may test you. If he doesn't then make this schooling session a short one as a reward, Somewhere along the way he may test you as horses do that but one reminder is often enough to deter this unwanted behaviour.
