Ok I have a Thoroughbred gelding who im having some small problems with. Hoping you can help.
I can't pick up his feet and when you do he will throw his foot around until you drop it. He behaves fine for the Farrier but not for anyone else.
You can't get him to take his bridle/bit as soon as the bit touches his mouth he throws his head, backs away, and has a tanty.
And my last issue is when riding in a walk he is fine seems calm and relaxed and when you ask for trot he pigroots, buck and shys. His saddle fits, he had a chiro visit. Everything is up to date. Oh and he is an ex-school master.
Your help with this would be much appreciated. I just don't know what to do. Do I send him to a trainer? Do I do ground work? Any suggestions would be great!
