Now that school is out I have had more time to ride him, and he has been somewhat of an asshole. Really figety, jumpy, and not listening to my leg at all. I hate using my hands on him because he has a chunk out of his tongue from a previous rider, but when he doesnt listen to my leg except for when I ask him to go faster, I have no choice. Yesterday's ride went a little better, I introduced the dressage whip which made him raise his head a little bit (he likes to hold it like a WP horse sometimes) and that was a little better, but still. Stupid prick needs to listen to my leg. We'll work through it I'm sure, but right now its frustrating as all hell.
