UPDATE: So a glitch just happened and my post went bye-bye. So heres the outline.

Tyhe and I were getting no where. He wasn't respecting the bit, so I'd get frustrated, then he's get frustrated, it was a chain reaction... So I put him back in a pelham, and he was supper great. It was the best ride I have had in a really long time.

UPDATE: Well Tyhe is doing fantastic, we jumped a 3' ft course very well and we are entering our first event on July 17th at pine mountain at the novice level, if we do well, we will stay an extra day and school training cross country and show at that next time.

However he is getting very very forward at the canter. It is really annoying. He trys to just speed up and speed up, and he gets difficult to stop. So I tighten his curb chain as a temporary fix, but I need a permanent one. Any ideas on how to get him to relax and pace himself at the canter? I guess until then well just work in circles doing transitions, and lunging, and other work like that just trying to get him to focus on what he's doing instead of speeding up.

Does he speed up at the canter in the ring or just when you're working outside the ring? And does it feel like he gets heavier in front as he gets faster?

No, in the pasture he is actually easier to handle, and he actually feels like he shifts his weight and drives even more from his hind end than usual. He does fine in a circle on one end of the arena, but as soon as I begin to use the whole arena, he speeds up again, and we use the circle again. Its all really weird and frustrating.

I just wanted to critique your jumping position if that's OK? I have noticed that you are leaning a little too far forward and just about laying on his neck. This puts alot of wieght on his neck and front end(even though he is a pretty jumper if you sat back a little more it would make it easier for him). If you look at some of your pictures you can also see that your legs have slipped slightly forward and you automatically did that to help your leaning forward. If he happens to stop abruptly than I bet he will kindly let you go over first lol.

FLAT CRITIQUE:

Also if you look at your flat pictures you can see that you are almost always looking down. Are you looking for the correct diagnal or lead? Remember that they are the horses feet lol and he should be concentrating on where they are placed. This again will also help his balance if you look up. Remember to also keep your thumbs on top.

Overall you look like you have a solid position with just a few little tweeks. I love your soft hands and you nice releases for the jumps.

I hope you don't mind me critiqueing you! I just like to help people be the best they can!

Have a good one!

PS Beautiful horse :)

Sitting back and deep in your saddle will help him move the weight more to his back end. It sounds somewhat like he is rushing and falling forward.

Reading more of your posts I notced her refused a few times? How long have you jumped him and do you remember how tall that oxer was? I think maybe you are over jumping him and challanging him too much? This could majorly affect his confidence.

You can stop commenting on my thread. I don't apreciate your critique, I have gone to nationals based solely on my eq. I've trained many horses and I know what I'm doing, and ido not appreciate you coming on here and asuming you know everything about my horse and what he is or is not doing, and what he can handle. I would never ask him to do more than he is capable to do, and I am highly insulted that you think I would. And if you would mind READING everything before you post you would notice a lot more and save your self from sounding pompus. I do not over 2-point, he meets me there, and I never touch his neck, my anchor is my leg, and I don't have to reley on my uper body or hands to hlp him do his best. Have you ever trained a horse? Do you know how easy it is to mess up a head set if they get behind the vertical, don't you think you would want to check that? I do. I am once again insulted that you infer that I cannot feel my diaganol or leads. AND if you pay attention every single one of thosd pictures was taken within the same second or 2, the rest, I NEVER Look down. He has good balence, I have good balence. Don't even respond to this. Go buy a team penner, and train them english. A very high strung one. Then MAYBE you will have some insight. Don't post here again. Your not welcome.

Sarah,

I'm still struggling with the idea that he stays balanced cantering and galloping outside the ring; but speeds up in the ring.

Try this, diagnostically - try cantering him in the ring in exactly the same way you do outside the ring, two point or even standing up, taking a cross in your reins if that's something you do when working in the pasture, and see if that changes things.

It's *possible* that if you're riding in a full seat in the ring, and two point in the pasture, that he associates full seat with his previous western training or there's something in his brain about running down the long sides of the arena?

I *think* in team penning, that when the signal is given, the horse/rider pair that is going to "cut" books it full tilt down the arena towards the cows.

Let me know.
