lunatic under saddle, this has little to do with the horse's physical

>One might, in this instance, longe him under saddle to determine where the
"holes" in his schooling are, or as an intermediate step to solving the
manageablility under saddle problem.>

>But if this were my horse, I would definitely be trying to figure out a
good training regime for him, and it wouldn't include trying to get him
