How do you reprimand a horse for ignoring your voice cue? My pony, when lunging, will sometimes ignore my voice cues. Do you shorten the lunge line, do you give it a tug? What is it that you do to get the horse to listen ? I admit to sometimes repeating myself.. and I know that is a no-no.
Sometimes he does very well with listening to my voice cues. He will respond almost immediately. But then other times he will totally ignore them, a big one he ignores is "whoa" when I want a downward transition.
Also is it wrong to use "whoa" purely to tell the horse to do a downward transition?
