So they called out the local meat man.. who offered them 400 pound ( you could not get head collar on her ) when I heard about this I had to have her cause I had seen her a few times nd she is gorgeous. She's like a bulldog next to a wippet when you put her by another TB duno if this is because she is American tb I do not know the difference.
So I get a friend with a small old wooden trailer to go pick up my 17h beast for a 2 hour journey , she cut her face open kicked the ramp straight off and fell twice on the way..
She really was a nightmare. I done some join up sessions with her and just played with her in the menarge and now I have her trust 100 on the ground iv bitted her saddled her lunged etc, she HATES her back end being messed with in the slightest so will not long reign , she does respond to reins Abit though when I'm walking her around.. I get her to turn and stop by using the reins.
So I was going to foal her this year but I got riding broody not foal broody so instead of waiting 4/5 years for a youngster I want to ride my cherry.
I attempted to get on her today and because she likes to follow me we was going in circles for a while until a very tall strong man came and offered me a leg up and she just stood, legs far apart unsure of the weight on her back, I thought she was going to do a bambi.. lol
But nooo someone walked her forward a couple of steps for me by pulling her lead rope.
I left it at that as I didn't want to push her or end on a bad note after such an amazing experience with her..
Sorry for the life story I just thought it be easier to give advice to me if you knew the lot ..
She has been fully vetted, foot specialist, dentist and back.. had abscess this winter extremely bad teeth back is fine apart from sensitive due to never being rode.
So I really need help with this and what I need to do next, I think it would be a hell of a lot easier if I had someone else on her and I could lead her around cause the trust we have but people are so scared of her my only option would be a professional but I'd love to do this myself, iv got experience breaking youngsters but its always gone pretty easily
So yeah if iv missed anything out just ask and I be very grateful for all comments and advice
Thankyou, Katie and cherry
