Ok guys. I appreciate the responce. I'm only new to this so any feed back helps. I've been to scared to push him hard in case he blows up. But he seems to be too quiet, (if that is possible) so I definitely need to be firmer. I am very firm with him on the ground coz being a 21/2 year old colt, he gets pushy and is starting to nip, so I have to be firmer on his back to hey. I'll let you know how I go if your interested.
