However my mom went out and rode him yesterday and told me that he was stomping his feet while she was grooming him and when she rode him in the ring, he was being a real ass. She described it as, him just being head strong and constantly pulling and always stopping at the gate.. Now I know my mom isn't the best rider so I could probably get him smartened up.. but I'm moving him in March and I don't want him to act like this if I go to shows, also when we ride with other people I find he tends to either race them or tries to follow them ..
Is there any thing I can do ? I know ground manners aren't a problem for him and I because I have established with him that I don't let him act up with ground manners, but I really don't want to be in the show ring next year and have him acting like this, let alone ride in a differnt ring without anybody.
Oh yeah, and he trailers alone perfectly fine .. It's so confusing!!
(sorry for the long and kinda jumping all over the place questions)
