Kobies concentration span has improved 100% in the last 6 months but I have noticed a little something that is hard to get past. If he has an itch on his leg, that takes prcedence over all else and he simply must scratch it- one minute we're trotting, next minute he's stopped and is scratching his leg. he doesn't do it in canter though. Recently I have started to adopt the attitude that this is not acceptable and that i will give him time to scratch but that time is not now- as my instructor says, "Are you going to let him do that in the middle of a dressage test?" What do you think? Has anyone else had a similar thing happen where their horse just can't resist?
