I know I've posted this question before but I still need help...
I dont' longe Riley at home because he's quiet there and because I have a grass ring, so he just wants to eat and won't pay attention to me and my big scary whip, no matter how much I crack it.
At the shows he's a nut (when I longe). He runs towards me and kicks up in the air, sometimes he even pops rears while facing me. I've done the "shake of the longe rope" thing and it does sort-of work, but I don't think I'm doing it right. I don't stand in one place anymore, I sort of walk towards his rear I geuss? Trying to push him forward. When he comes towards me I shake or snap the longe line. I just bought a chain but haven't used it yet.
I get so nervous just thinking about longing him that my stomache hurts. Help please!!!!
