Please, before this turns into a NH vs. Conventional war. I want to remind you all that we have rules here and it would be much appreciated if we all followed them. Keep this discussion kind and friendly.

Horse training is NOT an exact science and there are many, many ways to teach horses.

If you disagree with a method that was suggested. Please only suggest your way. Not any ONE method will work for ALL horses and more importantly not for ALL riders/trainers.

Thanks for understanding and keeping this thread civil.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I think what we need to do here is not to point at each other with quoting in capital letters as it almost seems like you are over emphasizing on things whereas it might not be the case.

All I wanted to know was why the lazy horse kept the head low while I wanted him to run with head high. Additionally what I should be doing in my next lesson to make him what I want him to do.

I did get my answers and suggestions from allot of people here and I appreciate everyone's input in this matter.

Lets end the "pointing" here and wait till Tuesday night so that I try what you all have suggested and post what was the outcome in the lesson.

Then you can suggest me further how to correct things which might go wrong in the lesson.

Can we make that deal here?

That was great advice Brandon and I also agree with Spyder and JDI but I won't bother wasting my voice on deaf ears.

ETA: Good luck on Tuesday! I also had a bugger of a pony but they teach you a heck of a lot!

Jehanzeb, best of luck in your next lesson. Please do keep us updated on your progess, I'd love to hear it.

I am done with this mindless debate, you all obviously know my position (and Spyder's, since we have the same views) and if anyone wants to discuss it further with me I will gladly do so via PM. (Brandon, this means you too )
I obviously do not see eye to eye with some other members and that's fine.

Morning Bedouin,

My lessons are going good, though I do it only once a week. Tuesday nights. not everyday.

I had a fantastic lesson last night. It was very good. I have made a thread called "What a lesson" under horse riding section explaining how it was.

As far as the head of the horse is concern, to be honest I didn't get that lazy bone since then so I can't really say how it all went. However saying that if I do get the horse again I will know how to control it this time as per everyone's advise here.

I thought you were asking me to tell you how it is being done instead of you telling me how it's actually being done.

I did get confuse there. Very confused! hahaha
