I've been working on flying changes with my boy for about a month now. On the flat, he will anticipate the change, feel the shift in my body weight, and speed up. I quiet him down and simply ask for a simple change. My problem is, he almost acts upset when he knows I am going to ask for the change. We have tried cantering over a pole to help with the swap, as well as doing simple changes over and over and OVER.
The strange thing about all this is, when we jump he has his changes down like a champ! I can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that he has amazing flying changes when we're jumping, and yet on the flat he acts like he has no clue what we're doing!!
Any advice would be much appreciated!
