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 it on both sides.

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?
