What do you think of my thinking
If you show a horse that they can flex their poll and necks, that they can bend and flex through their body do you think they can get excited and use this new found freedom to become more energetic when ridden?
Reason I ask is because since Sam has learnt that he can relax through his body while being ridden he has become a lot more forward, energetic and naughty? Maybe he is experimenting with his body - what can he do?
I think he has a sore hip. I stood up above him this afternoon and looked down and his off side isn't as developed as his near side.
Sam is changing, he tries different things with his body more now. Is this him trying to figure out what I am asking? I think sometimes people get scared when their horses show forward impulsion. Why do I think this because I am one of those people I think. Sam still hasn't done anything really really bad, yes he has reared but he hasn't bolted off, really bucked or just gotten really nasty so this makes me think he is experimenting with his body.
