Just like the title says, I am having trouble getting my 2 year old to lope in the round pen. I can get her to trot around no problem but if I want her to lope she will just trot faster. I did manage to get her to lope a few strides yesterday but that involved alot of me running and snapping her with the whip. She is not at all afraid or respectful of the whip which makes it hard to get her to go without hitting her with it alot. I really don't like to hit a horse with anything but on the other hand she has to know that I am boss and she needs to listen. Just in case someone asks, the pen is plenty big enough for her to run.
