Since the weather has gotten better, (YAY!!!) i've obviously been riding more. We usually start out slow but when we get to a neighboring field i'll let him canter for a bit. (Maybe mostly cause I like to canter ;) Lately though when I try to get him to go he'll just trot and not go any faster. I know it's not cause he's hurting or anything, he's had regular vet visits and just got trimmed a few days ago, but he's been known to be stubborn, and he's pretty lazy, so i'm wondering if it's his stubbornness. Am I mean to try and make him canter? I'd like him to exercise more than just a ride down the road. Is there something I can do to make him WANT to get up and go?
Sorry if this didn't make sense...... Any advice would be appreciated.
