hello tilly,and welcome to the forum.if you can't make this horse go forward,then stand beside his shoulder on a short lead and ask him to turn with you.do it on both sides.

Live each day as if it is your last for tomorrow is not promised!

What are you asking the horse to do?

What have you done?

How old is this horse?

How much training has this horse had?

Can others work with this horse successfully?

Need more information to help... but welcome to the horse forum :)

Lightbulb Info

He is 9 yrs old
Works well with others, but can be aggressive if you get to close
Used to be forward going, know doesn't want to and just stands around!
Use to be a good show horse, might have picked up bad habits from new naughty horse!
Tried lunging, won't respond.

What is your experience and what advices has your trainer given you? What is your role in the horse's training?

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I'm not the most experienced person, but help mucking out, feeding, helping lessons etc. I have tried lots, so I guess i'll try the vets!
