Teaching manners when following
My mare Libby does great on the trails, but she is definitely a better leader. Last night we were the last horse/rider of 3, and she did ok, but every time the lead and middle horse did anything, she had to, also. If they went into a trot, so did Libby, if they stopped, so did she. I had a hard time putting her back into a walk when they started trotting because she just wanted to do everything they did. She would get a little head tossy with me when I asked her to do something different, also. Any advice? Overall, she's an excellent trail mount, just want to be able to follow comfortably when out with others.
