I'm having a problem with how to discipline my horse while I ride. I have let him get away with too much and now its starting to come back to me. Tack and health check out fine, I think its just him being a jerk. He starts off great when I first get on him, but as we progress, he starts to get excited and starts bucking or getting strong. What would be a way to discipline him while I ride? Should I get off and lunge the poo out of him??? What about stopping him and backing him up? I thought about carrying a whip with me, but I don't want him to associate the whip with punishment since I also use it as a training aide.
