Strange horse ?

Well My pony ride out fine on her own.She always has done. Even with huge scarey vehicles goin past on the main road.
But just lately I started to use spurs over jumps.Worked for jumping.
Took them home n rode in them.
Didnt Ride on the road in them again.Now until we meet other horses which is about a mile n a quarter down the road we insist on canter ALL the grass verges.(I will Canter a grass verge but onli when I know there are no cars)and sticking our bum out if we don't trot and we manage to buck ohh yeh and we have NO brakes :(
I've looked at her back n teeth etc. . .

Any ideas ? Whats Happend To My Baby!!

Thankyouu. You get Cookies For this as advice is badly needed!!

Honestly, I would give advice if I could read what you were saying and understand it.

Are you trying to say that the horse bolts and bucks on the road now and didn't before you used spurs??


The hardest thing about riding is the ground.

I *think* what I got out of that is that your horse use to be good outside but was lazy. So for jumping you used spurs, but outside when you used them she started to bolt?

If that's the case I would just ditch the spurs completely and work in the area for a while until you get your confidence back up. Moving forward off the leg and stopping when asked. It also might be worth it to learn how to do a one rein stop, they work wonders.

Also maybe your tapping her with the spurs and not realizing it? A rider should not use spurs unless they have a quiet and refined lower leg with good control and feel of the horse already. IF she's unresponsive otherwise try a schooling whip and give her a small tap when she needs to move forward.

I am really really really sorry! I am not very good at gammar and I didnt check the post before it got posted.:(
This is Sorted. . . .
Well My pony has always rode out fine on her own. She's never even really batters an eye lid when huge scarey vehicles are going past on the main roads.
But just lately I started to use spurs over jumps. Spurs worked for jumping.Only rode in them on the way home from my friends house.I didnt ride on the road/hack out in them again.Now until we meet other horses which is about a mile n a quarter down the road we insist on cantering ALL the grass verges.She turns her bum out to cars if I try to stop her or slow her down(if I don't slow her down she will try and canter or really really fast trot down the road).If I somehow get her to stop or slow down she will buck(she doesnt bolt).

Is that better?

Tell me if it needs editing again.


Thankyou xxxx

I havent used spurs even in the arena for a long time. I am trying to just make her do basic thing(walk, stop, turn)and its beginning to work.

How do you do a one rein stop?

A schooling whip doesnt work I tried that:(
