I have an 18 yr old Cob mare on loan. She is an ex riding school horse and appears to be dead to the leg aid. I don't like using the whip too much either. When she gets going she is fine and a lovely ride but walks so incredibly slowley. She does walk a bit faster on the way back so I know she is really bored/lazy. I also have a dodgy hip/leg so probably am not helping by the way I sit and use mainly one leg anyway. I don't want to give her up as she is bombproof but - can I have everything?
