Please give me all tips you know on teaching my AQHA gelding to learn how to do a consistant WP lope. I can't get him to keep his head down and be relaxed or stay at a constant pace. He is doing better at using his hind end because when i ask him to stop, he isn't slow about it. He quickly uses his hind end to stop and then i back him up a few steps. Please let me know. I would much appreciate....
Thank you to all the reply.

hey... well any dressage rider is going to tell you to half halt. But coming out of Western i know a bit of both. As you probally know the horse has to be balanced. I reckonmend doing circles, do 20m,15m and 10m and go littler and littler. This will slow the horses implusion down. I have had results doing this method.
Goodluck :D
