The issue that seems to reoccur while riding is my horse pulls against the reins while riding. She understands commands. It's mostly being stubborn. My trainer and BO say time in the saddle. Firm and consistant direction. And I am doing things right. Just keep with it. You say right. She says "no let me try left. Oh you mean it? I'll turn my head, but my body still will go in a left direction. Oh you really mean it? Fine but I'm going to try again....." After about 30 min of being a snot she'll literally sigh super loud and give up. If keeping with it is what I need to do... Then I shall... But thought some input wouldn't hurt from others with lazy stubborn horses can't hurt! I get lots of advice From BO daily and prof training/lessons when I can afford it, but I work alot by myself. Don't worry my horse is safe for a beginner (my trainer and BO say I'm an intermediate, but until I am more confident I labor myself beginner) and has 100% approval from my mentors. She's just a little stinker and wants to to see what she can get away with, ya know? No rearing prancing bucking etc. Just a "I don't waaaaannnnaaa" attitude in the arena. On trails is where she wants to be, but it's no practical for a beginner to ride off alone. Arena work with others is safest, so that's what I do.
