very bumpy while loping
While riding Storm today I noticed that he was very bumpy and fast. Usually while loping he is smooth and slow, but for some reason he wasn't today.
I don't think he was hot because his walk and trot was the same. It was almost like he was jumping and bouncing with every stride he took. I tried pulling back on the reins and stopping and backing him up but nothing seemed to work. I thought that he might be hyper so I just let him go full speed around the arena for some fun but after about half a lap he would run into the middle and I could barely control him.
It’s very frustrating and I hope that it’s just a simple fix. Does anyone have any advice or similar past experiences?
