I bought a 15hh Irish in Sept, he hates contact in his mouth or on his sides, but responds to voice and seat. He was fine when I tried him but at home hes started to rush in the school, scared of men and nervous to the touch. Draw reins help a little due to the constant contact. He’s never reared/bucked/or tried to ditch me, he just canters off but comes back to voice aids eventually. I'm not sure what else to try, and my new job leaves no time to school him. He is lunged at least twice a week.
