Whip use to move hindquarters

Clinton Anderson as well as Parelli suggest to use stick to say, move the hindquarters away from the handler by tapping the horse's hq with increasing power until it eventually moves. When I start doing that my qh COMPLETELY ignores the stick tapping while it's light. When it gets stronger she starts bucking. Did anyone had same issues? Paint moves though.

Hehe thunder kicks lol

He's getting better. He doesnt like it when I poke with the stick...it's more of an annoyance, but when I use my finger and my body language, he usually moves right away.

Yes, it's certainly annoyance. She kicks hard though. Paint doesn't do it - just move, but qh always fights first before doing something. I guess depends on horse a lot. Lol!

There are just some horses you can't use a whip on... and some horses you can't wear spurs on... and so on...

Dressage whips, in dressage are used to use the hind quarters efficentally. And I use them...

Your horse is just bein stubborn, and he knows, if he bucks he gets away with it... cause he simply doesnt wanna do it. If he stands there while you tap him lightly, he can't be scared! Its just stubborness... and the only way to over come that is..work and paitence :)

DW, I use dressage whip as well. :) I completely agree it's just stubborness. She eventually moves when it gets strong enough and after that moves with rather light tap. What really surprise me the fact I'm doing it for quite a while, but she always starts with bucking first.
