Oh. Oh.  How do you convince them of this?????  Mine can be flexed nose to tail 
in either direction and still going at whatever speed he wants.  I would love 
to find a good way to rate him a lot better, but so far have been unable to.  
We have had dressage lessons (the instructor told me my paso was a good little 
dressage horse.), we have tried different bits, we have tried hackamores, we 
have tried natural horsemanship, we on occasion have just played tug-o-war (he 
wins everytime).  My fingers are callused.  I am beginning to think the "i'm 
gonna go as fast as I want" attitude is bred in, and I might as well live with 
it.  Sigh...

nice, 7 mile ride yesterday with no theatrics! (not counting the pig on the 
trail incident)).
