    Some horses get high on alfalfa. See if you can switch out the alfalfa for a grassier hay.

    If this horse is really that hot, I would eliminate as much grain as possible. I would feed beet pulp,...

    Maybe the buyer was looking for the particular saddle you have for sale and sees good value for their money due to the weak Canadian dollar. I don't think the lack of in depth questioning...

    Some OTTB just take time to learn to eat hay, IME. I would give him a few months and just keep offering it. Once he lets down some more, he may start to show more interest.

    Some horses are just slower to develop than others, especially if their hind end conformation isn't the ideal. If your horse understands the concept of leads and lead changes and is able to do them...

    I have seen bacterial infections present this way. I would think a systemic antibotic might be in order at this point.

    In my experience, thoroughbreds do best on beet pulp and oil with a ration balancer and or high fat/hi fibre grain of your choice, such as Purina Ultium (which I think is the US equivalent to Purina...

    Having had all of a Crosby, a Selle Francaise and an Exselle, I will say that the Selle Francaise tree is quite curvy in comparison to the other two.

    An Exselle Debut or Chasseur may be more what...

    Definitely not how I would want to present myself in the show ring.

    I see a lot the horse being told to go and stop at the same time. If both of those training issues are going on, IMO, you drop...

    Personally, I would stay out of it. IMHO, t's not your place to police another trainer's sales, whether you feel the horse is accurately represented or not. Some horses thrive in different programs...

    I also don't think your saddle is doing you any favours. It is hard to tell from video, but I think it looks a little too small for you.

    At times, you do clamp your thigh and drive with your...

    I don't think hand position is a static thing. It really depends on the amount of flexion you're trying to achieve, the degree of the bend you're riding, etc.

    The first problem people run into...

    Less rein, more inside leg. If you're mucking about with your hands, your horse is likely not moving off your leg well laterally.

    It sounds like you're attempting to use an indirect inside rein...

    Why were you not cantering? Is he coming back from an injury, or did you just take some time off. If it is not an injury-related thing, he just sounds too fresh. Perhaps a little free lunge before...

    Check his feed bucket. Is he an aggressive eater that swings the bucket around? Could he be bonking himself with the edges of the bucket handle? If so, maybe try a ground feeder tub.

    I can assure you he will be MUCH less happy if his coffin bones rotate/penetrate the sole of his hoof than if he was a bit hungry.
