nervious... i dont want to hurt her!
i work for an older man, and his views on horse training are rather old fashioned.
he purchased a 20 month old arab mare for me at the auction to work with, that was 10 months ago.
she is now 2 and a half, and i have just recently started riding her. we have done work in the round pen, and we have been on walk-only trail rides.
she is 2 and a half, 14.2 egyptian arab. i am 5'4'' and about 120 lb.
i have noticed after i began riding her, she has become a bit more..shall we say, rude? is this because she is not emotionally ready to be ridden? is it my fault? i feel as though it is, she is the first horse i am training and i dont feel like i'm doing it right.
i have a trainer, but i only see her maybe once a month, due to my location and her not being around much.
can i be harming her? i don't own the horse, and the owner is pushing me to just keep riding her.
what should i do?
