Thanks Wild_spot. I'm not afraid of him at all, so I have no problem letting him on a loose rein. He really is a good boy, but he is going to have to learn that sometimes we have to walk....even if we are riding with a bunch of idiots. I will try your suggestion...I do have a tendency to keep those reins short when I am expecting bad behavior from him
He is gaited though, so if he gets in a trot I'm going to be worried...just sayin
Thanks again...I will give it a try.
I'm worried about being to much in his mouth while trying to slow him down. Yeah, it works, but how much of that before his mouth gets tough and I have to get a meaner bit....I don't want that.
