Running through his shoulder
I am training my 3 yr old under saddle at the moment. He is about half a month into his training. I do have help as I need it as well, it's just not consistent help. The other day we were doing some circles at walk/trot and it was getting close to feed time. Well as we went a little past dinner time he started to get very antsy and continued to push to the gait. As we would go around the circle, he would ignore my aids and keep pushing until I made him stop. Eventually I was able to keep him working until I got a couple nice circles but it seems that even though he got past it that day, he is still trying to pull it again. What can I do to fix this "food driven" attitude. I know he is still young and don't expect a quick fix, but can't have him completely ignoring me.
