My boy used to rush everything except the walk. I spent 3 years doing half halts at the trot and canter, and eventually got him going incredibly well, unless i actually pushed him. at one stage, when we were cantering i could have gotten off and walked faster that we were travelling. i used circles with him and half halts, he was still a bit full of himself for a while when we were out and about, but he realised that the minute i put my bum back in the saddle and sat into him that he was going to be told to slow down.

God i miss that boy..............actually, i miss riding. its killing me not riding at the moment :(

good luck with your baby!

Aw, I'm sorry.. If I may ask, what happened to your boy?

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
