Re: My horse won't pick his legs up!
I too have a 15hh irish cob, retired now, but back in the days when we would be schooling, she was a real pain with trotting poles and small x poles - poles would be flying in all directions as she just ploughed through them !!
Give her a xc course, or bigger showjumps, though, and she'd clear them no problem.......
My instructor reckoned she was just being lazy........but we never cured her, partly because she developed arthritis, and partly because she was - and still is - so b****y stubborn !!
Probably your cob is similar? and with huge feet to match lol.
Not a lot of help, I know, but I'm thinking it maybe just a cob thing........xx
