I have a 5 year old quarter horse, he is my baby and ive had him for a year now. I'm a beginner to training. on the ground he listens to me and does whatever i want. But he's a lazy and never wants to run unless i have whip him and i know some people dont see that at as a problem but i have to constantly keep hitting him with my barrel whip. i had a friend come mess with him and after a while he did good,next day i got on and he ran when i asked stopped and was just perfect. next day he wouldnt do a thing but throw his head. maybe im doing something wrong, we also have a ottb 5 year old mare they are attached to the hip. but like i said hes my baby and i dont wanna give up.
