Thanks guys for the posts.
I wish I had trails to ride opn, but the stable I board him at doesnt have enough land. Sadly they don't have any trails. :( Ill try riding him around the property though that might keep him interested. I work alot on stopping, starting and backing up right now. He knows how to turn like a champ already. Whats nice is he turn almost completly by leg commands, he is very very light on the mouth. When I first got him he wouldnt back up, but after practicing alot I barely have to tell him to back up and he does it. The other really big thing I have spent hours working on is trotting beside me. When I first got him he would actually start to freak out whenever I tried to get him to trot beside me, but with help of another boarder at the barn coaksing him with a lunging whip and just letting him get over it, and now he does it like he has been doing it for years. No more freak outs, YAY. He is such a quick learner though. Everyone at the barn is jealous at how smart and quiet he is. At only 2 1/2 I could walk under him he is that quite. I do loads of groundwork, Lately I've been working on practicing getting him square, because I hope by next year Ill be able to take him to a couple of schooling shows and show him in some halter classes. The biggest problem I've been having lately is that whenever we stop he turns his butt away from me so he isnt straight, do any of you have any suggestions that could help?
