i cant help my friend

How do I help a naughty show pony get on better with her rider? Rider is fussy andwants things to be perfect. Pony refuses to listen or pushes her into fences. Advice please.

It will never work if the rider rides with a attitude. Is the pony suppose to be trained to her perfection? If not she shouldn't expect that from the pony without some work and a positive attitude. Sounds like the pony is getting mixed signals or doesn't understand her perfection. Patience and work.

Sounds like the pony needs more play-time. Get pony and rider to have fun together.

Have your friend find a good trainer/instructor for herself and the pony.

It'll only get worse if she continues on the same path with no professional help.
