Thanks for the advise, she seems to know her stuff when she's being lunged so I will definitely start incorporating voice cues.

Also, a slight update, she doesn't seem as nasty today, in fact, she seems pretty normal. Actually coming up to me for a fuss, and following me around.

And iridehorses, you're a Mod for the wrong forum if it drives you that "crazy". I came on here to ask a question, because I'd get an answer from like minded people. I did not expect to be put down for asking such a question, especially by a Mod of all people. I shouldn't be made to feel bad for not knowing what to do in this situation. At least I asked, unlike some people, who don't ask, and just let the problem get worse, instead of trying to fix it (then again, right now, I don't blame them for not asking, because they'll just get put down like I did for it) And yes, I have had some good advise, which I am going to use. I'm not just gonna ask a question, get advise from people who have put in time to answer, then just go and ignore it. Also, not once have I said "she's my life" or "I love her to death", I said that when I tried her, she seemed to have a lovely pace and temperament that suited me, and the way I ride, which is why I bought her. I'm going to rap this up now because it's made me angry and upset for someone being downright rude just for me asking a question (yes, it may seem silly to some of you, but it's a genuine question, otherwise I wouldn't ask) Next time, iridehorses, if it drives you that crazy, don't read or reply to my post, because, after all, I'm just a young rider that can't deal with the training this horse needs.

Young lady, if you think that all you will get is like minded answers or people blowing rainbows at you, you have no idea what a forum is all about.

Secondly, my response to you was a correct assessment of your situation. I have no idea of your age and the remark about young members was not directed to you specifically, only that some member do not recognize that they are over their heads and that there is a time to get out from a potentially bad situation for themselves and their horse.

If you can not take advise given in a constructive, polite way, then perhaps it is you who does not belong on the forum. The forum is a place to learn and sometimes learning is that it's the wrong horse. I didn't tell you to get rid of your new purchase, I suggested that it should be an option. Learn to read what people are saying instead of looking for an argument.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
