I have a Standardbred Mare who is 15.2hh and is 11yo.
Me not being the most conifedent rider, she is making me quite upset after riding her.
As she yanks the reins out of my hands, and starts to trot away and is difficult to stop.
Which I make me quite scared.
I ride her in a 1 acre paddockbut have an area made to ride her in, yet she still snatches the reins out of my hands and runs off.
I am lost..
Is there anyone that can help me? Please.
Lessons are great though, you can gain confidence and you always have somebody to back you up/support you when you're feeling lost or even scared.
