Training My First WP Horse!
I have finally start our 4 yr old Paint x QH cross. Today was his first real day of learning (previously we were doing field rides). In a single day, he has learned a walk cue, trot cue, stop, and back. Plus, he is super sensitive to turning! The surprising thing is, this is his third time being ridden this year!
So my question is, how do I get his headset without sitting there and teetering on his mouth? With my dressage trainer, we train headsets off of my legs, so would that be a good idea to start? Also how do you get a nice jog? He naturally slows down once we trot about a half of lap, but how do I keep it continuous?
Thanks for any advice!
