Looking to get my mare in the RIGHT direction!

Two weeks ago I bought MY very first project! I have a 11 year old 16.3H gelding that I've used on games/cows/trails/ it all. And he is great! I bought him as a 7 year old and I've taught him all he knows. However; recently vets told me an injury would cause pain in his back legs because of his built and what not for games and cows. I'm still going to do light game shows, and trail riding with him because he's my big boy So I bought Reba a 14.2 hand QH mare, WAY different built than my gelding Baker. She's only two years old and I have started her on the simple stuff as she wasn't very experienced. I really feel as though she'd work good in games and with cows and love it unlike Baker. How should I start her? Baker picked it all up because he was experienced, I've trained other people's horses to do what they wanted, now I want to train her how I want her. What should I work on with her, from the ground up I want details!

I LOVE Clinton Anderson. He is absolutely amazing and his methods are easy to follow and work really well. As for the pattern, I like to mix and match with different methods. Good luck, congrats on the new prospect, and I'd LOVE to see some pics!!
