How to Ride a Lazy Horse

We all know the frustration of riding the so called “lazy” horse. No matter how hard we kick or cluck, we seem to always get a less than energetic response. We end the ride with tired legs and often a feeling of annoyance towards our horse.

While of course some horses are simply less inclined to go forward, most “lazy” horses are simply unresponsive horses – desensitized to our constant kicking, nudging, and squeezing.

Sometimes we are even accidentally making it harder for our horses to move forward because of unnecessary tension or tightness that we hold in our own bodies.
There are different ways to motivate a horse to go more forward, but in today’s video I focus on a simple riding concept that is often overlooked with the slow and lazy horse, the release.
