Help me! My pony won't slow down!
So, hey guys. I have a pony called Monty and he is only 12hh (I am short for my age). He is a good little pony and I love him to bits, but he's so fast! He is so fast and sharp, also he is only 11 so at a young age, he has a LOT of energy.
He loves to jump and go for a good gallop but I can never get him to slow down. I have a trainer who helped me a little, but sort of made it worse. She rode him but now he doesn't bend, but sticks his head out and bangs his nose on the fence.
So I suppose I'm asking for advice on how to slow him down, how to get him more relaxed when ridden and made his neck more bended to the inside. Thanks!
