| || | I'm having a hard time getting my horse to WALK!
I ride a rescue horse at lessons each week. He isn't ridden much (I'm the only one who rides him) and its his only exercise I think each week. When I take him out, he has SO much energy! I've been flexing him on both sides, and only about 1/4 of the time it makes him calm down. I will have him flexing on both sides for a long time too, until I feel him give to me. Sometimes I do have problems realizing when he is submitting to me though since I'm still very new. Any suggestions? Or how can you tell when the horse submits? Thank you! :)
