| || | I need help with a horse balking.
My Arabian, Paragon, has a bad habit of balking when he doesn't want to go somewhere. It is only when we are riding at home and only when I am mounted. As soon as I dismount, he will follow me almost anywhere. I have tried kicking him really hard, using a crop, and a few other things. How do I get him to move with out having to dismount? He has tried bucking a few times, but I don't let him get his head down very far so he stops trying. I don't think it is pain, because the saddle seems like it fits him really well and he only does it at home, anywhere else when I am riding him in the same saddle he is fine. Thanks!
