His walk can be slow or fast, his trot is always fast, but his canter is slow and very up hilly when saddles on or lounging. But in pasture he's fast.. how can I get a fast canter when ridding. And to slow down his trot, I don't want to get him to stop when I try because I would rather ride a fast trot then not get a trot for very long. I don't have a big arena its 56' by 64' right now but 2 corners are full of stuff so its a little small around the edges.. it will be going to 54' by 56' when we get stalls in.
How to get him to canter with out him flipping out? We can't take him outside or he will freak out (trainer took him 5 miles from his place and he freaked out the whole time he's very barn sour) he walks fine with me when he's on a halter and lead we walked a mile away and he was pretty good. How to get him to leave home? He's good in arenas and other fenced in areas, I really would like to show him in something this year to get him use to shows.
And how to build a topline? We are backing up ditches now we are starting with a few times and hoping to get up to 10 to 20 times a day..
