starting a speed event from scratch?
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 cant find her "spot" to get her to canter, or gallop for that matter. but when shes 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?
