Jiggy jog on the trail
Does your horse jig on the way home?
The cause is usually anxiousness or anxiety.
Either way, there’s a solution that works well on the vast majority of horses.
Here it is… drum roll please:
Keep your horse’s body straight!
You’re disappointed by that solution, aren’t you?
It’s too simple, right?
Here’s the facts. 99% of horses, jig with their hindquarters cocked off to the side… crooked.
They’ll be two-tracking as they go forward. Don’t let them do that.
Use your legs to keep the hindquarters following directly inline with the forequarters.
And use intermittent bit pressure, just like you would when asking a horse to drop his nose and collect up.
Do this and the horse will quickly discover “jigging” is more work than he wants to do… and will quit.
