Subject: Tough and very smart also! :)

Thank you for your information and experience!

I hope that someday my horse will actually want to work. He does work great for the trainers, but they are pretty much out of breath completely after an under saddle work out with him. And he doesn't quit for them. Only me. And only going 2nd direction of the ring. But I fear I would run into this problem no matter when I started riding him. I think he's just "testing mommy." So to speak.

Like I hope that someday I will be able to ride him without a crop and/or spurs, and that he will be forward, and want to be forward on his own, without a ton of encouragement from me. Maybe this is just the Friesian way? He is my 1st Friesian, and my 1st horse.

And I don't think he is necessarily lazy, he does have a good amount of energy. He just is very smart...and tests you to see if you're actually going to make him do the work. Right now I am still in the testing stage.

Please keep the stories coming! :) I want to hear more people's experience with training their young Friesians. :) This is wonderful learning for me.
