Ask first with your calf squeeze.. and up the pressure until they listen. Don't be afraid to give them a good smack on their bottoms if they ignore you for more than 2 seconds. (to back up your leg)

Funny!
I let mine stop to poo, unless we are training to show.
Now my Rick REFUSES TO PEE with me in the saddle! He gets really antsy, balks, spins, and gets mouthy. I figured out the problem so before it escalates I dismount and he does his biz! Lol! It's hilarious and he rides soooo much better afterwards, like a new man! Funny boy!

I guess also a good thing to start with would be to not let him poo while lunging either... excellent!

My horses always poo on the go, just don't let them stop and they figure it out right quick.

I have heard of horses peeing on the go but have never actually seen it done.

It sounds like your horse might be taking advantage of you with his poo, which will happen if you don't push through. (WOAH, did not mean to rhyme all ghat xD) just squeeze... kick... Kick...KICK... smack ;) always give the chance to use light aids!

If we're just out on a lazy trail ride, I let my boy stop to poop. Usually during that time, I also have him on a loose rein and we're just moving along with no real 'work' going on. If we're working though, either on the trail or in the arena I expect him to continue on, pooping or not. Sometimes I have to give him a good squeeze to remind him, but nothing horrible.

My boy doesn't like to pee if someone is mounted, likely because he parks out so far I think he's going to fall over anyway, and he can't do that with a rider. He chooses to wait until I dismount if he can, but will go if we're stopped and he really needs to. Since we rarely work more than an hour or two without a good standing/stopping/rest break in there, I don't worry much about it. I know one gelding that does pee and walk at the same time though- he just sprays it everywhere, including his back legs.

I make my horses poop on the run, so to speak. This entire thread reminds me of an old saying that describes a horse that can really run fast; "He can sure scatter his s**t" LOL.

Of course, I let them stop to pee but sometimes I even have to interrupt that. When you're working cattle and 3 hours worth of work is depending on you being in a certain spot at a certain moment, that's not the most opportune time to stop and pee. Even though it must sometimes be done, I still feel a bit guilty when I have to interrupt their stream.

My horse is the worst. You can kick and jab and whip with all of your might, but his stubborn behind is not moving when it comes time to poop.

All my horses but one were "poop on the go" -- my current mare is a "stop'n'poop". That's it. That's who she is and there isn't anything that I can do about it that doesn't entail horrendous amounts of frustration. So I just let her stop. I did try to teach her to be a "go-poop" but y'know, it just wasn't important enough to me. So I stopped.

As a note, of all the horses I've seen in backyards (mine and others) I've never seen a horse poop on the move in the paddock. Do you see trails of poop in there? Nope, you see piles. From what I've seen, they stop if given the choice.

Uhh I don't think amidst playing a horse is going to stop, poop, and then go back to playing.

They let it rip as they play, I've seen it. Yes I see piles but they aren't always running around in pasture either. They graze.
