    Trigger, is there anywhere near you with fields that have been plowed last Fall? The loose footing will slow a horse down fairly quickly. You can achieve the same goal a lot sooner.

    Saddlebag, Ireland's too warm (relatively speaking) and wet to take a horse for a canter across a ploughed field at this time of year. Only the fittest horse, with the best rider would be lucky to emerge without pulled tendons.

    Oh, and of course the poster would be lucky to emerge unscathed if the farmer that owns the field spotted her!

    Pasture with bridleways, pasture fields with permission to ride in, or moorland or park land are the options for her.
    jaydee and Glenknock like this.

    I agree that with jaydee that you should be careful he dosn't associate fields with galloping.

    And Beau159 every horse is dangerous and if Trigger is as you described it being a runaway horse then that would mean to me he has gone head strong and no matter how good you are no amout of body weight or strenght will stop that horse because you have to remember that horses are 10 times more powerful than us if not more. The paragraphs I wrote were 1 per paragraph you wrote both times (just because when you said no matter how many paragraphs I fluff up it sounds as if your a implying that I just wrote a big essay out of nowhere) Also I agree that you were banging your head against the wall because even though lessons are the best option I agree with you all there she can not have lessons for her own reasons untill the summer no matter how many times you say it.

    We will do other things to school him not just galloping him. I hope to ride him in the field too if I'm able. Can someone please just tell me how to calm Trigger down or how to get him to behave a bit more when I ride him?! And not about my riding?!

    That's the point. It IS about YOUR riding...and how your horse is responding to YOUR riding. Until you understand that and want to take responsibility for YOUR riding, your horse will NOT change.

    Yes it is about the way you ride him but as I said before just turn him in a circle and sit back then he has to come back. Imagine some one on your shoulders. If they throw their body weight back you have to stop or slow down. Also if you are running it is easier to run on the straight and when you make a sharp turn you have to slow down. So if you combine both circle and your body weight he will slow. Then continue with your schooling adn if he tries to go fast again just turn the circle and use your body weight imediatly no matter where you are. Continue this untill he sees sense. :) Good Luck

    Ok I'll try the circles next time but is the bit on the third ring ok to pull him back with? :/

    You should never pull a horse back. Ever. If you pull, they pull harder. And they win. You need to just use your seat and your weight, as rhos said.
    Honestly, if you are totally in control, you shouldn't need reins at all. Your weight and legs would do the trick. I've tried it before... It's a brilliant exercise (Obviously only to be used when you know you are in control, and are in an enclosed space).
        11-30-2013, 04:51 PM
    Well my horse isn't trained to slow down or be controled using my legs or weight and I believe that only the best horse and rider...and I mean the best can have a good ride without reigns.
