Getting a stubborn horse to move out?
Hello all, I am new here and have a question. I don't have any horses currently, but my aunt does and I ride this one horse all the time like everyday. He will NOT move out. I can kick him and kick him and kick him like no other and I wear myself out. I can get him to trot and canter just kicking him like that but when he does it, it only last for about 2 seconds. I make sure my reins are loose, my position is right, and that nothing is bothering him physically and still the same old thing. I use spurrs with him and that seems to work really well, but I want to get him to the point to where all I have to do is give a little tap without spurrs and he will go. Any advice?
P.S I even ride him bareback all the time because he seems to like the "less weight" as I would too. BTW i'm only like 115lbs lol
