I have only ridden Flash a few times, as I just finished his ground work, and I cannot get him to trot while I"m on his back. I've been riding with a bareback pad and snaffle bit. He does great at a walk, but when you nudge him to speed up, he seems to get irritated and pins his ears. He will not go faster though.
I checked his back, and there are no sore spots, and his teeth were just done a few months ago.
Could he be acting like this because he feels unbalanced? He's a tad over three yrs old and can be quite uncoordinated at times. What else could cause this? He has no problem trotting in the round pen or in the paddock.
Any advice is appreciated
