Think I might have found the problem, his canines have errupted and there's not much of a bit seat, can't see any damage in his mouth though thankfully. So today I thought it best not to even put the bit in because even seeing the bridle makes him want to run off,suggested that Anne So comes to have a look as I really don't know much about teeth, he was quite happy to be ridden in the licol. Consequently I didnt do any of the 'cadmo's exercises because didnt know how to exactly without the bit :hmmm: can you enlighten me?

You can do them all just as easily in a sidepull.......

Um, yes I remember and with Isba too...oh duh :shock: I'm not great at imagining things once the horse is wearing any sort of tack....going to have to think about how to do this enjoyably for all concerned. :lol:

I'm laughing because there's a picture of me, with the very horse concerned, doing the exercises, oh dear, not too bright really am I.... :roll: YES, have the sidepull, will use on Sunday, and Kiki too....I think what threw me was the pics with the bit and arrows, lifting the bit etc, so the action is exactly the same...?

Tess I have had a student working from a place of zero experience in this work and what has helped enormously is using 'props'. Poles and cones/buckets etc to 'mark out' exercises- for example using dog leg poles or cones for bending, pole 'box' to halt or transition in, circular fans of poles to guide circles and teach inside bend.

Nothing wrong with the horse's expression in that photo, Tess. It is you who looks as if you're concentrating hard and he is pretty chilled! Look how his closest ear is totally on you :love:

Glad you might have found out what might be causing it. Have fun with the side-pull :thumbup: I love the idea of using props. And I have just had another idea but you'll have to wait a few days to find out what it is!
