    Wont move! Help

    My gelding has a major attitude and wont move forward. I ask him to jog or lope and he stops. When I smack him with the crop or use my spurs all he does is buck, crow-hop, ect. I need some advise! He is a competitive show horse and doesn't like to do what he is told

    Lunge and establish a voice cue, then use the voice cue while riding.

    Is this a new behavior?

    Yes and no, he has always had somewhat of an attitude but he has never completely refused to do anything

    He needs to be checked for any physical problems before you make any conclusions. Also, have you changed anything in his diet or routine?

    If its nothing physical it may just be he lost his love to be riden.... if someyone asked you to walk for no reason. With someyone on your back will you? So he maybe bored even

    A horse at my barn does the same thing. Do you give up and stop when he does this?

    On the ground use a voice cue before you use a lunge whip to get the horse to go. Give the horse a chance to do it off the cluck, and then once that's down and the horse goes forward off of the cue, hop on, ask for forward and if the horse slows (or doesn't speed) up use the voice cue.
