Silly horse, that's more work!
Arab owners may be able to relate.
I went for a trail ride a few days ago thinking we'd just go for a brisk walk and see the forest. Can my horse just BEHAVE and do that? Goodness no. If he's not working hard then he's not having fun. I ended up setting up a mini course in the arena and cantering him through with countercanters, lead changes, bend changes, etc etc and THEN he was a happy, properly back to front relaxed horse.
Silly Arab - you could have just gone for a walk!
Anyone else have workaholic horses?
