How do horses get impulsion?
Don’t get fixed at the same speeds. Whatever pace you are in, keep changing, make your horse lengthen and shorten, go forward for 4/5 strides then shorten again, do the same in every pace. This is a very effective way to create more impulsion.
What does more Whoa than go mean?
“More whoa than go” means that a horse is more naturally inclined to go slowly than to go forward. Horses with more “whoa” will require more leg from the rider to motivate them to move forward. On the other hand, it’s generally easy to get them to stop.
Can you fix a lazy horse?
If your horse tends to be lazy, always work with him in faster paces. So for example ride in faster trot more often, do a lot of canter work. Often switch between fast and slower canter. Another important thing is to always be consistent with requiring your horse to react even on low amounts of pressure.
What is a menage in horse riding?

How do I get my horse to lift his back?
Continue to ride the horse forward with your legs into your hands. Eventually, the horse will lift its back, and initially, he may try to shorten his stride because you’re holding his face. Just keep driving the horse forward and keep your hands steady, until you feel his back lift up with his stride staying long.
Why do horses stop when you say whoa?
Horses are motivated by rest so if you give your horse a rest when you say, “whoa,” it will build an incentive for him to want to stop. 5) Trot the horse 40 feet on a loose rein, and then ask him to stop again. You don’t want to go too far before you ask the horse to stop again, especially if he has “go” on his mind.
Why do you say whoa to a horse?

What are horse commands?
Horses are very apt at learning verbal commands: “whoa”, “walk”, “trot”, “canter” or similar words are quickly understood. The actual words usually do not matter, as long as they are consistent, though the tone of voice and the accenting of the word have an influence.
Why does my horse not want to go forward?
Rider tension and imbalance is a common cause of stopping your horse from going forward willingly. Because that tension interferes with his natural rhythm and movement. When a horse is relaxed, balanced and supple, his head nods (in walk and canter, but not in trot) and his back swings.
Why does my horse not want to trot?
The horse may have been ridden in a way that didn’t encourage him to go forward, perhaps because whoever was riding him was afraid of his size or stride. Or perhaps the rider couldn’t sit the canter or trot unless they were just mincing along. And some horses just plain have a sour attitude. They don’t want to work.
