My horse is an 8 year old Quarter horse; I've had him for a year. I really enjoy riding him and he's very talented; however, I want him to respond quicker to my aids. He's a pretty calm horse and we do pleasure stuff, but I watch my sister's horse (she's working on some reining stuff) and he's 'quicker' about stuff, more touchy. My horse isn't lazy at all, he likes to go, but he's slow about stopping, sidepass/turn on forehand/hindquarters, and backing. If I ask him say, turn on the forehand, he just kinda takes his time doing it. When he backs he's very slow. I don't know how to get him to respond quicker. Can I? Or is it just the way he is? Like I said, he doesn't ingore me, he does what I ask, but he doesn't move his feet (or stop his feet) very fast. I really want to try to get him to back up faster to where I squeeze with my legs and the reins and he goes!
