    ^^^^^ What Zu Zu said. I don't blame you at all for wanting to ride. I would too. In fact, I would ride. But don't take that as encouragement. I have very little value for my own life!

    PerfectPony, that is a really good idea. The last time I had a friend video my ride, I told them, oh, don't record this, this is the ugly part. It would be better to see it!

    Thanks, PP. I really should just get after him. But I HATE doing that. I can't ask anyone else to do it. This is my problem, I have to deal with it.

    Amen. I did my best with the one I had, but we topped out at leading. I did eventually get him happy to pick up his feet for the farrier. That was a miracle. The first time, it took the vet...

    Thanks. I think the case is the latter, he has learned that he can get away with it, because in every other case, he is totally in front of the leg. I haven't tried a whip aid because, to be...
