An excerpt from "Rein In Your Horse's Speed Course [Downloadable PDF]":


WHAT TO DO IF the horse just won't move his darn hip: First try changing the way you're using your hands. Try more pressure. Try less pressure. Try different angles, maybe faster, maybe slower.

If that doesn't work, remember, the objective is to teach the horse to "give to pressure" right? ("Give to pressure" means to not pull away from the bit, but rather to relax his muscles and to bend smoothly, fluidly.) So if you just can't get the horse to move that hip over, or you don't feel safe "forcing the issue," or if you feel like you're tring to bend a two thousand pound rock, then make it simpler for both of you: Simply pick up the rein and ask him to soften his neck muscles or drop his head as he takes a step in the same direction. Then let go, praise, repeat. What do you do if you can't get even that? (Say, the horse backs, stops, etc.) Again, make it simpler: Get that forward motion, pick up a rein, wait till the head softens or drops AND GO ANY DIRECTION, even straight. When you get that, try "softening on the turn," then work your way to getting the hip to move. It's important, though, that much more often than not, you're releasing as the horse is turning. Why? Because the horse needs to associate the reins with a change of direction. (rpt)
