I always do exercises on the ground. He’s very good motivated!! I do between his legs like he’s Boeing for each leg and move his back around me basically to his butt after and before every ride. He just had a hard jaw and no one can get him to supple. Recently though I haven’t even been touching his face and all of a sudden he’s very giving and have been soft in the bridle. I just want to be able to get on and him be willing for be soft. He used to be when I rode him in this huge Pelham that he came with but I didn’t want him to be used to that so I now use a softer bit and that was a struggle!

It's the difficult horses that have the most to give you.
