So, my new horse hasn't rode in awhile, I bought her and am
trying to get her back riding again. She rides just fine normally
when someone is on her back and someone is leading her.
However, I decided to give the bridle a try yesterday,
without the help of someone leading me (I use a snaffle
bit), and she walked a few steps and stopped a planted
her feet. We tried everything to make her go, we tried
bumping her, tapping her on the rump, everything
imaginable. I even tried turning her
head sharply so she would have no choice but to
move a few steps, she turned her head, but her body
and feet stayed planted.
We tried over and over. Either I am not approaching
this situation right or she is stubborn. :(
I really wanna get this ole' girl going again, she is a sweet
horse, and I really need some suggestions to make her start
