Question # 303: My horse is SO lazy, I have such a hard time getting her to go forward. She exhausts me nearly every time I ride her. Although she is better once we really get jumping courses...
...I already use spurs and a whip, but when I use either she either ignores me or pins her ears and threatens to buck. How can I get her more motivated? (Susan)
This is a great question, as it is SO important for your horse to be (and stay!) in front of your leg. Not much can be achieved without it! Those that don't truly have it, yet are working on more advanced concepts are only fooling themselves. They will only continue to struggle until they go back and fill in that big hole in their horse's foundation. (Click on Question Title above (in blue) to read full answer)
