Subject: Friesian "quitting" during riding time, just stubborn baby stuff?

Hello everyone.

I am having a problem with my 4 year old Friesian gelding "quitting" (he randomly stops and swings his butt into the middle)under saddle during my lesson time. He only does this 2nd direction of the ring and he only does it for me, not the trainer. And he doesn't do this while driving. He just turned 4 a few weeks ago. Is he just being a stubborn baby for "mom"? Do all Friesians just give you the bare minimum during work time? I have to push him VERY hard ALL THE TIME.

I would love to hear from Friesian owners that have young horses in training. How hard are they to keep going? Will they ever actually WANT to work? My gelding works about 5 days a week doing different things. He drives down the road, he drives around the fields on the property, he rides and drives in both the indoor and outdoor arenas doing different maneuvers, so I know he's not bored. Is this "quitting" typical of the age? I hope I don't have to deal with him for his entire life. Will it ever get better????
