I know they teach beginners to just tap a school horses shoulder with a crop to get them to move, but that's only because alot of kids don't have the timing/ balance ect to put the reins in one hand and reach back behind the leg to do it properly.
    But trust me it is MUCH more effective to use it behind your leg. And in time your horse will learn when I squeeze, you go forward if not...... you get the picture

    Yea definetly I get what your saying. I normaly don't ride with a crop so im not that used to it. The other horse I ride will buck if you use a whip on him so I don't ride with one.
