The first thing I want to say is I don't want to cause any training arguments with this thread but I just wanted to get soem opinions
I have a coming 4y/o reg. Paint gelding that I've had since he was 5months and I started him lite at 2. I started him off western pleasure more becuase that's what I was more comforitable with and that's what came easier for me, he is very much a natural HUS horse. I know I should have started him with something that would have been easier for him but its done well now he is almost finished in pleasure my trainer finally broke me down into doing english with him.
Our first rides have been great, he is still alittle confused at me asking him to speed up after I spent so much time bringing his gait down but the BIGGEST thing with him as always been his headset, it doesnt matter pleasure or HUS.
So heres my question (finally) what could I do to make his head set better without the constant jiggle or sometimes it turns to a tug with me reins and inside leg? He knows the cue, he'll ut his head down for a second and the minute I go to praise him he pops it back up and the battle continues.
