Horses I have raised before never had any issues like I have with this guy ppl that had him before I think spoiled him and treated him as a big dog, so yea he's kinda grown spoiled in his own ways "hence reason for the dvd's"
I have to keep an eye on him constantly to catch him before he tries to do it.
Don't get me wrong I am doing the ground work with him its just these small things that perplex me..I thought that with the ground work all these little things would work themselves out?
We do the long line walk trot canter and back ups...
Bending, and moving hind end away from pressure..
I am having to desensitize him for spookiness...
He really has come a long way in the months that I have had him. He wouldnt let the farrier work on him the first time I had him out to get his feet worked on and just this last time the farrier was out he thanked me four times!!! Because the horse did so well!!!
He use to not stand still for grooming or while being tied - Now he does somewhat~
