    Seriously, that is fabulous. I always cringe a little when I say, "I never use draw reins" because there will always be that one horse who will NEED them for two lessons. However, people do tend to...

    I'll try to sympathize, but the bottom line is that YOU NEED TURNOUT NOW. Your horse is bored to death. Scaring him isn't going to help, he's going to use all his extra energy and freak himself out....
