Subject: Friesian quitting
In reply to: Helen 's message, "Friesian quitting" on 10:40:16 06/03/11 Fri

Hi Helen!

Thank you for your prompt response! :)

The thing is, he is quitting once he's already been going. I don't really have to ask him too "hard" to engage the trot. He does it pretty willingly. But for some reason, he's only doing this going second direction of the ring. First direction is fine. (so far.) :) Once he's going, if I let up, he would just slow down and stop. He's not that naturally forward horse that you speak of. :) And he's also fine in the cart. We don't really have to push at him that much in the cart. Probably because it's easier for him. I.e. no weight of a rider on his back.

The other thing is, he only does this for me...not the trainers. So maybe it's a respect issue? He respects his trainers very much. Me, not so much because I am "the mom." So maybe this is just something I have to work through with him. I just wanted to know if any other owners of young Friesians have gone through or are going through this same kind of thing.

Allison
