After having described the situation the answer to my question occurred to me out of the blue.

I couldn't find a way to delete the post.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Corry

Just when I was going to say something. Answered your own question did you?
It sounded like you are not dealing with some major rejection or resistance. It would probably make you feel all good inside if your horse just picked the thing up like it was candy. But they are not always there to make us feel better. Having to wait on him a little bit is not a bad thing. If it got worse the more you rode him, then that would be a different thing.

Right. Sometimes putting an issue into words leads to the solution.

Exactly.

How did you know?

Wise words. You hit the nail right on its head. This concept was the key and it appeared to me after I had posted my question and then bridled my horse the next time. My expectations changed and the behaviour of my horse changed with my expectations. Not yet perfect, but much better.

If it got worse the more you rode him, then that would be a different thing.
Right. But it's quite the contrary.
I'm astonished that despite my poor English you understood so well what the question was about. Thank you for your opinion which made me more confident that I'm on the right track
