Lately I've been having problems getting Sonny to do a nice slow jog (or trot to those English people ). I've tried half-halting, or milking the reins and it doesn't work. I can get a fairly slow trot if I'm using two hands, but with just neck-reining it seems to be impossible.
Since Sonny has lost weight he'd gotten more energy and wants to go...and unless he's super-dee-dooper tired and I did alot of work with him before hand.
I really would like to show him in western shows (not sure what type of show though), but I'd like to be able to get a fast jog when I want one...and a slow one when I need one.
Any ideas that would work? Mainly if I'm neck-reining...he stops fine...and I've tried putting more pressure on the reins...but I do that and he walks...he's sooo stubborn haha
