    At home, he doesn't anticipate. However, at shows we often have to stop from a gallop and fast turns - He has a lot of adrenalin and occasionaly dives his front end around looking for a turn that I don't want! I do back him up after stopping - However I had been making him stand for a few seconds before backing. I'm going to cut that time out for a while and see how he goes.

    Workin on proper balance and teaching a horse how to stay balanced should help. Some are natural at some things but all need help in some areas. This gets pretty technical but it sure helps. If you just want a good balanced stop watch when you ask. Remember that the key is "I said Right now!!". Backin up provides a tool to get them to understand "I said Right now!!".
