I am new to this site and I am wondering if any one can help me.
I am having a problem with my horse lately. I think he is Ring Sour.
I have shown him in Western Performance at local Saddle Clubs successfully the last few years.
We have also won High Point awards.
An example of this is when I am showing Western Trail he does half of the course fine, but he rushes and balks through the last half. He does things like lopping roughly and fast and refusing to go over or through obstacles that he normally does fine.
I used to work 12 hour shifts which did not give me much time to practice my riding. I do not have a riding arena to ride in the Winter. I am back on 8 hour shifts again and this should give me more time to work with him.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help me with this problem?
