I have an 9 year old QH who is absolutely the sweetest boy in the world - but he has a very annoying issue with speed. As in, lack thereof. After a little while of patience on my part, I start getting naggy, and of course he isn't going to listen to me then, so I just end up frustrated and stuck at this agonizing slow pace.
I've heard of several remedies for this, such as trotting poles, squeezing with alternating legs, carrying a crop, ect. Is there something that has worked well for any of you?
