    If that's the case, then the re-training is basically the same as I posted earlier, but I wouldn't get after him quite so harshly at first. Learning a whole new set of cues that is so contradictory to what he's been taught before is terribly confusing.

    If the spur stop is his problem, he would likely respond to a brush or a tap with the whip instead of an all-out wallop.
    ^^Good point!! Mine was green broke when I got her, so she was always trained English...so bit of a different situation sounds like!

    I'd like to say that lately I have been using the "Ask, tell, MAKE" method and he is almost another horse. The transformation is wonderful and I will continue to use this as long as he progresses with it. :)
