Okay this is going to seem like a stupid post, but im having problems with the horse I loan. He's a 15.2hh exracehorse who I've had pretty much most of the year. When I started riding him, he was really easy to stop, if he went too fast I could just slightly pull my outside rein + he would steady right up.
He's had end of april/whole of may off due to a back injury (so he's been having physio) he's been lunged in walk trot canter + over jumps.
I started riding him again 2 weeks ago.. everything seemed fine; however now when I ask for trot he decides 3 strides is enough, bites the bit + tries to run off!
I've tried the 6 stride thing, + he just clings to the bit + refuses to stop
I've tried differernt bits + nosebands but nothing seems to help
Just wondering if anyone else knows what I can do???
