    You did fine. You were just surprised at the response that you got. I hope that you will not let people tell you otherwise. You did good.

    Fair enough; however, my saying that it's never the horse's fault is a truism which is necessary for anyone involved with horses to absorb. Long-time horsepeople have forgotten this truism in the heat of a difficult moment, & you're a newbie, thus all the more appropriate for you to imbibe it.

    Haha - I bet you were surprised...

    Most horses are trained to move to a trot with just a very gentle nudge accompanied by clucking and shifting your weight forward a bit - sometimes only by clucking. Some train them so that they will move into a trot merely by voice command. I train mine to respond to body movement - a gentle pelvic thrust forward and they move into a trot.

    This is what he thought you wanted...

    Judas Priest Hell Bent For Leather Lyrics


    Songwriters: Tipton, Glenn Raymond


    Seek him here, seek him on the highway
    Never knowing when hell appear
    All await, engines ticking over
    Hear the roar as they sense the fear

    Wheels! A glint of steel and a flash of light!
    Screams! From a streak of fire as he strikes!

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather

    Black as night, faster than a shadow
    Crimson flare from a raging sun
    An exhibition, of sheer precision
    Yet no one knows from where he comes

    Fools! Self destruct cannot take that crown
    Dreams! Crash one by one to the ground

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather

    There's many who tried to prove that they're faster
    But they didn't last and they died as they tried

    There's many who tried to prove that they're faster
    But they didn't last and they died as they tried

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather

    Is it correct to assume your instructor volunteered the information about the horse being sensitive to leg aids after it happened?

    You did what your were told to do, put both legs behind the girth and squeeze. To that affect, you did what you were told. However doing that on a sensitive horse tells the horse only one thing, GO. Technically you both did what was asked of you. Get a better instructor or teach this one how to communicate.
