I wasnt riding him in a bit. Just a halter and a lead ropes attached to the halter.
As I had mentioned, he likes to run along side or walk beside horses, and I am trying to teach him to be confident, so I don't have trouble when I ride by myself.
I don't like it when I have a buddy sour horse or anything.
He is quite buddy sour ish.
So when I move him away, he will try to pull me back towards pepper or marshmallow, but when I redirect his attention he stops.
He only puts a small fight.
Last thing I want is to go for a ride, and have my OTTB unmanageable and get hurt.
I don't have him in a bit yet because he is a cribber and his teeth need to be floated, his bottom teeth are very long.
I do agree with Sambam, He would do that if I had the bit in or not, he is doing it in protest, because as I mentioned he wants to go with pepper or marshmallow, but I wont let him, so I rein him in a few circles and go on my thing, protest with him a bit more over the subject etc.
It is definitally not from pain.
