    Or I would recommend Clinton Anderson's "cruising" method. I had large success with it with my green 5 yr old. The goal is to have the horse stay in one gait, with no assistance from you.
    For example when my horse needed to learn how to canter on his own, I brought him into our hay field, got him cantering and let him choose what direction to go, as long as he stayed cantering. He would only be reinforced when he would drop down to a trot or walk. His release would be me leaving him alone, and just let him go. Good luck!
    Well I had his feet I was able to rule that out of the picture and the saddle fits him perfectly so I don't have to tighten the cinch up so bad to where he can't breath, but I like your idea of cruising
    If the weather ever gets nice again I'll give that a go :)

    Green Broke
    Weight & body shape are the No 1 problem that a lot of us work on, & it's a lifelong thing. I let my guard down because of 3 back-to-back trips & 20 plus pounds jumped on me! And it's so hard to lose it, especially after many decades of being alive-LOL. But it will get done-I'm upping my exercise & cutting down on portions.

    Hmm. My main three would probably be: Make my new horse easier to catch ( He was used as a lesson horse for all his life so he associates being caught with hard work). And work on his arena skills, he's very forward going on the trail, but inside he's a disaster ( He portably associates it with endless circles and people slamming on his back). And my final one would be to smooth out his trot. He has an amazing lope, but his trot is really bouncy.
