Oh I get that, no worries. (:
The thing is, I know it's not just him being lazy, and it's frustrating... he has total respect for me on the ground, and then once I'm in the saddle it's like he switches gears- get off, and he's my absolute best friend. I'm not weak with him either, and he was better when I rode him on Friday, sadly his bit doesn't exactly fit and I'm not riding again until I can get another. I went to the tack store yesterday and they'd closed half an hour early, blah.
His previous owners, who had no problems with him, rode him in a kimberwick, and I did for awhile-no problems- switch to a snaffle and the problems slowly began.
I don't know if it was a coincidence or whatever, but could that have anything to do with it?
