Usually when he does that, I bump his nose by alternating reins left right left right. He is excellent to put his head back down and collect after that reminder, but he would only last a few strides before sticking his head up again.
|I really feel my hands are not soft enough for the Tom Thumb bit, as I do get a little jumpy sometimes and don't want to yank his head off.|
As far as actually getting him off his forehand and off your hands, do lots of transitions. |
I LOVE transitions to limber him up and get his focus.....best suggestion ever.
