Have finally started showing my 5yo and at our first schooling show he was fantastic warming up in the arena but when we went in alone for the pattern we got to the centre of the arena and he was full of himself. He wiggled like a worm and naturally just wanted to go. Literally no matter what I did he went sideways, backwards, forwards but refused to stay still. Even when hesitating between manoeuvres.
He is a very forward horse and very smart, he knows what his job is but I do put it down to my nerves on the day as well. I would love to know how other reiners handle this?
