My QH, JR is awesome in the arena, I can teach him anything and he learns in about 20 minutes. I need some ideas on what else I can teach him. I haven't been around horses for about 20 years - I use to show them when I was younger but its been a long time!
Things he does....He lunges perfectly both free and on lead all by voice commands. He backs up by voice commands. I'm teaching him neck reining which I'm a little rusty on that (I'm using the crossover rein method). Any suggestions? I would like him to turn very easily once the rein touches his neck - not sure how to do that.
Some things I would like to improve but can't remember how - I would like him to round his back and neck, I keep leg on him but he doesn't respect the bit yet - I'm using a snaffle with a shank, should I go to a slight curb bit? Any suggestions?
Any other ideas on what I could teach him? Its winter so our only option is the arena.
Thanks for any help/direction!
