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.
Honey I agree with waresbear. Lessons are the way to go, from a really good trainer. You won't be able to get over this from internet advice alone.

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.

Yes, Tiny, I guess it isn't a stop perse...more a bending of her neck toward my foot. I do this on either side when she is trying to pull "stuff". This is how I get her to know that she isn't the boss.

I do not do it to be "mean" or harsh. I just draw her head to the side one way and then back the other. Does that make sense?

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
