Help staying in the canter...
My shetland gelding is really lazy. At first, he would not canter! I had to go buy a crop. But we have fixed the issue with lunging, but now I cannot keep him in a canter. He will for a while, but then he slows to a trot, excpecially when I have him turn. I also have this problem with trotting, though it is not as bad. Also, when he canters, its a really fast canter. When I ask him to slow it down, he trots or just stops.
Any tips would be nice, wether it is me or the horse :/
