My mom has me putting some miles on her 3 year old mare.
This horse has no desire to go. Nothing. At all. She'll walk along lalalalalalala, trot with me tap-tapping her sides, and lope if I kick like I'm trying to out-run a twister, and then I have to keep pushing and pushing, aand then she'll just lazily break into a trot.
My (previous) plans for her were to get her collecting a bit at the trot, loping nicely, sidepassing, and moving her front end and back end.
Well. :/ the collecting went out the window, I can't possibly get her up into the bridle.
I can't stand this horse. She makes me sooo frustrated. I can't find anything that's made her get excited and want to GO. I even tried to play with some crazy steers.
I have no problem with horses that just want to GO. But this....
