How often should I use my stick to make my horse go forward?

Question:

How often should I use my stick to make my horse go forward?

Answer: 

Educate them to the stick and save as a last resort.  Teach the horse to respond to the leg with corrections directly from the leg as it’s the leg we will rely on most in the ring, not the stick.  Of course less experienced riders or riders with weak legs will naturally have to rely on more use of the crop.
