I have a 10 yr old quarab mare, and she, well, has her own attitude at times. But, she is a fast learner. I was looking into doing a speed event with her. But, I really can't find her "spot" to get her to canter, or gallop for that matter. But when she's in the mood to go, she will take off like lighting. When I lope her she will go through the gates just with the whip. To trot ill just squeeze. Should I whip out the spurs? They arent crazy sharp by any means. Help?
