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 don't 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?
