Hey guys, so J.T. has a problem and has for a while that he won't move out (like go faster than a jog) when his head is collected/on the bit. I ride with spurs and when I use them he just gets all sassy and bratty and sometimes will slow down. Idk how to get him to do a nice English trot :/ without him not being collected. He will do a pretty extended trot with a really loose rein.

Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks in advance!

Our bond can never be broken, Catherine & J.T. forever <3

does he get sassy while not collected with spurs? do you need spurs with him? id either take them off or use a crop.

Try collecting him without spurs. if theres still problems,i bet someone who has more knowledge can help.

does he trot and canter while you're not trying to collect him? if not there's probably another issue. work on getting him moving while not collected first. also have you been taught how to use sprus? spurs are an aid, and not meant to get your horse moving forward. also could you possibly be pulling on the reins and not knowing?

Yes he will trot and canter and whatnot with looseish reins, Idk I could be pulling on his mouth but I don't think so. Yes I have been taught how to use spurs.

Yes I can ride him without spurs but it makes no difference, and he hates crops/whips.

ok. well just keep bugging him until he does it...maybe hit him with your hand everytime he gets sassy? i would also be careful about where your hands are...you prob are pulling on his mouth

it could be the fact that he doesn't have the muscle yet to stay collected nicely in a trot and canter. do you have any hills you could work him on? those are great for building muscle faster.

Get him checked out by a vet.


Home is behind, the world ahead, and there are many paths to tread.

Yes I have hills to work him on, and we don't have the money to get him vetted.
