Horse Won't Move
So I have this appaloosa gelding named Melman. He is a fun horse and is awesome on the ground. When I halter him, brush him, put fly spray on him, bridle/saddle him, anything, he just stands there. The problem is, that when I try and ride him...he just stands there. No matter how hard I kick him he doesn't go. I try and turn him to get him moving, but he flings his head and maybe takes a step in the opposite direction. He refuses to turn right, but if he does move at all, he goes left, forward, or sometimes back. I've tried flicking the reigns against his butt but it doesn't work. WHAT DO I DO? If you need to know, I'm riding him Western with a snaffle bit. He used to live on a ranch and was used to check cattle. If you have any more questions just ask :) Thanks.
