I have a 5 yrs old Gelded Clydesdale with a mix of standard bred in him. His name is Walker. He is such a joy to look at <3 but the problem is, once we got him a friend of my family's came to check him out. He was sound but has a tendency of being too clingy to people ( pops your personal space bubble ). And she told us that he was round pen trained. So her and her family came out and taught him to drive a sleigh in the winter time. All went well. But his riding skills however were just terrible! He didn't know what right or left was. My question is how can I get him to learn his rights and lefts? And he seems to have a nasty habit of bobbing his head and nearly hits you in the head? Is that normal if he hasn't had much experience? Is there any way to stop this behavior?
Thank you so very very much for your thoughts.
