    The best horse goes where you ask him to. If he stays on the rail for a few strides, veer off into a figure eight and then go back on the rail. Rinse and repeat, but change up the kind of "figures" that you do with him.

    He was just going to be a trail horse.

    Well, today I figured out that his disobediance goes beyond his grumpiness and being difficult. Today whenever I cued him into a trot he wouldn't go into a trot and would start sidestepping or moving his forequarters and turning and spinning acting like he was trying to everything he could do to stop me from putting him into a trot or canter. I called my instructor to come take a look at him and showed him what he was doing and we both came to the decision to stop working him for the day and have him checked out because he was acting lame. At first I though the was getting his cues mixed up, but I think the problem goes beyond that. What do yall think?

    My instructor has a new horse to train and is putting me on him tomorrow, so I'm excited for that. He's a nice looking paint horse, he only has one spot of white on his leg and he's all black everywhere else.

    If Dusty is unridable, I'm going to miss the old guy. Even though he was difficult he taught me a lot and made me a better horseman and trainer.
