Smile Mustangs. :)

Since I bought my new Mustang Filly (Yesterday! HAHA), I've been researching Mustangs and the way they learn and behave. I've come to understand that they're quite different from our domesticated horses. Does anybody on here have any information or tips for her training that they'd be willing to share?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Congrats on getting the filly, mustangs are amazing horses. I have 2 that I did all the training on and the only thing that I noticed that is different between them and other colts is that they have a heightened fight/flight reflex. They will sometimes see the boogeyman in places most other horses won't. They take a while to build trust in you but once it is there, IT IS THERE. Once they kinda figure out that nothing from he human world is going to eat them, they can really mellow out. This won't be true of all of them, of course, but that is what happened with my 2.

I would love some pix of your filly. I am always anxious to see other mustangs.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

OK! She is a beauty. I love her markings on her face.
