The lesson was a mess! It was like he forgot completely what we had worked on. He was throwing his head up after every jump and he was putting the entirity of his weight in my hands and really became shut down in his mouth. I don't have rough hands. Im not a fan of having to jerk his month and pull on him, im more of a body person. But when he is determined to pull me forward its sort of hard to do much with your body. And he's a big horse, so having him forgetting his manners and becoming a real head weight is a problem.
Does anyone have some excersizes or tips on how to fix this? I know I wasn't at my best but a horse with his experience shouldn't be dragging me around. He's a total sweet heart and not an aggressive horse in the slightest, but while jumping he just becomes a little hot head and he gets into this " ima jump weather you like it or not" type of attitude.
