We were not allowed in a class because her Regestration was Pending even tho ashley explained to the guy that i didnt care about points all i want is to get mine some experence But he didnt care .
Ashley also explained that she brought her 5 and a half month old filly last year and her rego was pending and they let her in the class but nup he wouldnt budge.

So i ended up doing her and myself all up and walking around. I done my work out in the indoor arena. Ive got to admit she wasnt fazed at all by anything she didnt spook/shy nothing didnt even snort, its Like she had been doing it all her life.

That's a bit of a shame, so people can be so pigheaded!! At least it was successful in the sense that nothing fazed her, that's the best block to build on.

Thankyou heeps for you're comment.

I only wish the float didnt faze her :roll:
She was fine bein tied to it but going into it thats a different story.

We in the morning before we left had trouble getting mine in the float ( it was he 5th time ) anyways doing the bum rope worked and we had her in slowly and stedaly being KIND!! and yeah she went in within 20mins.
When we where going to leave we had some more problems its almost as if she didnt want to leave she loved it there so much!

We tryed everything the whip tapping method (that worked with benny now he is a self loader, Before he used to be beaten to go in).. we tryed bum roping, ropes on the side and using them to slowly get her in, picking up her feet and placing them ect ect but nope she wouldnt go in.
Some guy came over and SNATCHES the lead rope out of my hands and start's pulling on her head and Bashing her im like SO HITTING MY EFFING HORSE!! and i got the rope off him and my dad is like LET HIM DO IT im like No way she is my horse!!!! he was soooo cruel.
Then this other guy came over he was SOOOO good with her and soooo KIND to her he ended up having to put a War bridle on her.. it dosnt sound as bad as it looks and there isnt a bit in her mouth because it isnt a Bridle Bridle..He put the war bridle on her and he said everyone stand about 200m away and dont go nere the float ect ect.. because he said that she can jump 16 feet anywhere.. up down left right ect ect.

War Bridle - http://www.oznet.ksu.edu/pr_eyas/ima...es/traini5.gif

well 2 and a half hours later she is STILL fighting. When she was float trained by my breaker he never tought her to work off pressure ect ect, so she was ALWAYS fighting no matter how much!!!
then a Profecinal western trainer ect ect came over he was Also brillient with her He got her on, He said she is such a stubborn horse.
When she was on the float i came back And me mum ashley and my dad where all talk to the trainers and stuff and this one lady said to me " Regardless of how she is to float regarless with what she does you love her and thats whats important". That made ashley and i cry and when they where saying stuff i was crying and they where all saying she is going to be good. Ashley said she wasnt doing it being nasty because if she was she would have had every opertunaty to do so she was just being stubborn.

Here are some picture's when she had the war bridle on
Any horse that has this on will give you a run for their money. But she just wouldnt give up

No1 is HURTING her in any of these picture's. Its just her fighting.

She also didnt fall back in any of the picture's.
And the rug was removed.

her with the war halter on ( i searched war bridle and it was different )

her being Stubborn

She isnt a bad horse! with MORE float training she sould come good.
Im getting the guy who got her on to come out he is really good with them!

after seeing pic's like that (loading) it made me sick even though she wasn't hurt.....abby's first and only load was hurable thank's to my stupid sister in and her husband and there no good kid.....they roped abby and let the loop get so tight that it made abby pass out, they bursted a few blood vesells wich coused her nose to bleed for a while... they were going to drag her little body up in to the stock trailer and let her recover when she got to our farm.....they wouldn't let me call a vet becuase they were afraid of getting reported.

Yeah i know the man that came over the first time was hitting her alot and then snatches the rope off me i went off my nut!! i didnt care what top not people where there!!

When the pro was helping and the rug had cut her leg (only the skin came off atiny bit) they lady came over with a can of purple spray for it. And she is like i'll put this on im like no you wont and she is like EXUSE ME THIS HORSE WILL KICK YOU im like im the owner i know her more then you even would. I went up to mine and stood at her ass and sprayed it and she didnt even move! the lady was like i laughed!!
