Subject: Get a Friend to Work with You

I feel your pain and here is my experience. My Friesian did the exact same thing as a 2 years old. He would run ahead then slow down and the handler would either be dragged or he would drag behind. Like your horse, he too is not lazy but I think that he just didnít get it. He is going to the keuring as a four year old and currently moves in-hand superbly but was trained by a professionally. I AM NOT A TRAINER and I didnít watch the in-hand training process. His keuring training right now has intensified and is reinforced daily by running to the stall after a riding/driving/Lunging session, running to the wash rack, running to the farrier, etc. My only thought is maybe having a friend work with you to trail behind the horse with a noise maker as you work him in-hand. They may have to gently tap his hocks with a whip. I know it would put your mind at ease to see him strut his stuff at home first before the big event. I hope that someone with knowledge response to your inquire. I wish you and your horse the best of luck and like you said the runners at the keuring will get him to move.
