Boo's got me blue
Rode tonight and it started out alright. I felt nice and centered. Boo started out listening, but by mid ride he wasn't listening to my aids. Seemed like everything I asked for he did but at his desired speed regardless of what I had to say about it. There was a lot of weight in my hands. I actually felt like he had gotten hold of the bit and was letting me keep his head from falling on the ground. Then...for no apparent reason he would be back listening to me again. Then rushing. Then listening. Then rushing. It was all very frustrating. His canter work was nice. It was mostly trot work where he was blasting through me. I'm wondering what to try to fix this. Any suggestions?
