    Ex racehorse running backwards!!

    My only concern about long reining him would be if he spun or backed in to me! He doesn't respect a schooling at all. If I use it on his bum he just either goes backwards even more or kicks out double barrel!

    Ex racehorse running backwards!!

    He's 11 and finished racing in 2008 and hasn't really done much since! We've pretty much nailed the dressage and jumping him at home, he was fine. It was his first outing jumping, maybe I should have gone alone? Im taking him over to my trainers tomorrow on his own, so will see what happens...

    Ideally, Id like a black one. But if the price it right, Id still be interested as the try before you buy will still set me back best part of £150.00 (although refundable if not bought)

    Beagle/Dog Owners

    My Scottie is like this. He is awful on the and gets all protective of me, so I tend not to have him on the lead. But if I see another dog coming and its on a lead, I will put Buster on his lead as the other dog is obviously on a lead for a reason!
