I've been riding my horse in a round pen lately, and she's doing really well. The only problem is that when we're going one direction, she stops near the gate and wants to stand there. I've used a crop on her to try to keep her moving, but it's very difficult. I don't know what to do.
She's fine going the other direction; she doesn't even slow down at the gate then. It's only going in one direction that she wants to stop.
I don't understand why she's like that. Any ideas? How can I make her keep moving at the gate? I've literally pulled the bit out of her mouth because I was pulling so hard on it, trying to get her to turn.
