I have a 3 years old horse that seems bothered when I ride him. I don't wear spurs and I'm getting him to learn that squeezing my legs on his ribs lightly means to start moving forward or going faster (trot, canter etc.). Getting him to walk has become no big deal at all, a very gental squeeze and he start walking and does that willingly. When wanting him to trot he needs a little bit harder squeeze (sometimes also clicks) and he does that but he seems to be bothered. His ears go back and low, he lifts his tail and sometimes even stops and kind of tries to kick my leg with his back leg. I put a lot of attention to what I'm doing while trotting- I don't kick him neither squeeze my legs on him, the reins not bouncing on him- nothing that I can spot. He has some attitude even when leading him - he tries to bit sometimes.
I don't want that attitude to become a habbit. :-\
How can I solve that attitude prob with him?
Thanks a lot!
