I have a gelding, Blackbelle who is about 7 years old. I am wondering what you guys think I should do next in the way of training him.
Blackbelle knows all the basics. Walking, trotting, cantered, haven't got him into a gallop yet as he is slow and lazy. He can jump as every horse can, but not well. It's hard to teach him when Im focusing on getting enough speed out of him. He can back up. Isn't very good with novelties or turning sharply. I've gotten him to dip his head learning to go on the bit once, but he can barely do it. He doesn't know much dressage and is gangly.
Anyone have any ideas on what or how I should train him?
Also I don't know if he can lunge haven't tried that yet.
