I did kick her back with my little whip, I had a saddle that was too narrow and the more I rode the nastier she got when I saddled her and she refused to move. I saw a video on Does your saddle fit and realized it was too narrow for her, she's flat backed. She is not the only horse, tried same saddle on friends Arab and she got snippy after a while. The new saddle is wider and flatter, and fits her according to the video and is a western (old was an aussie).
The other female was an alpha where she was, I think she was lonesome and I spent a lot of time with her. She prefered bareback and halter and I want her to use bridle and saddle, she's green broke but was ridable but now she won't do anything unless Mariah is near. She has been moved about a lot in the last year, figured she was just lonesome. Went from being with 7 horses ,to a horse farm to, 3 horses to, my house alone, now has another horse around.
Also I am having trouble getting her to lunge, she lunged when I got her and up until I brought her here, but now we fight when we lunge, but she listens otherwise. She backs, comes when I call, I can put her halter on and even bridle her without trouble.
