I just wanted to ask, if anyone had any ideas on how to teach him that he doesn't always have to stop when he sees hay on the ground.
I think he might grow out of it but he is only 4 and has went his entire life without knowing that food will always be there.
I also, want to teach him to lounge(sorry for my spelling) in the round pen.
Is it better to start on or off the lead line?
Also, I can get him to go to the left but not the right when I try he just follows me. He goes to the left at a walk only. I have gotten him up to a trot once, but he doesn't know verbal ques. How do I teach him verbal ques for walk, trot, and canter? He knows whoa.
Okay, last question. How do you teach a horse to trot beside you? I want to show Copper in hand but I can't get him to trot next to me. I looks at me like he knows what I want, but won't go more than a fast walk.
