In his bad days, he either tries to run off with me or refuses to move at all. All this bad behavior came about after he dumped me about a month ago. He has a clubbed hoof, but he's completely sound, so I don't know what's wrong with him. I recently switched him back to a loose snaffle from a jointed curb. He seems to be better now that he's the bit he was in to begin with, but he still has his iffy days.
One more thing for now.. He doesn't get the concept of lunging to save his life. I've tried numerous times to lung him and all he does is look at me like a have a million heads and trots back to me in that goofy, 'I can't be away from mommy for more than 5 minutes' way. He doesn't invade my space, he just has to be close to me. The only time he's successfully been lunged is when I was on him and my friend was on the ground.
Sorry about the rambling. Any advice?
