Sounds like he's just taking in his surroundings. No worries. If he was dropping like a cat, rattling, swooping, or spinning I'd say he needed some work. You are handling it well by asking him to move on, and he is. Just don't let him get into the habit of stopping EVERY time, anticipate and keep him moving. I will collect my horse before we get to a spooky area, I'll ask mine to lower his head or take a pass so he keeps his brains on me.
Congrats! Add a photo! Love to see new trail horses on here!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
