I felt really bad because I yanked at her mouth cause she was tossing me and she kept raising her head up and pulling her ears back because she wanted to stay near her friend.My husband took pictures of me riding...I'm a BEGINNER so please do not yell at me.I just need advice on ways to make sure stop because she will only do what she is told if I put spurs on and roll or tap her with them. I don't want to be yanking on her mouth but today she WOULD NOT listen and when I saw this photo I about died.
Also my saddle is a 15 inch. I was told it fit me but I was wondering what you guys thought. I have very muscular legs just to note on.
This pictures is when she was throwing a big big fit and she yanked me her way when I was trying to turn her.she totally went against the bit and and my leg cues would not work. This has been a really bad episode.
She ALWAYS pulls her ears back. I even had a vet come out and her back is healed and I bought her a theraputic ESP pad.
HORRIBLE posture. I don't like this one bit but thought maybe this might help...she was mad because we were leaving the horses again
AND me at home in my scrub shirt! Not that anyone cares...but I liked this picture,haha.
So anyways, is this a common thing for many horse owners to go through? I HATE that I pulled so hard on the reins but at the time she would not listen and it was the only thing I could get her to stop freaking out on me. She is in heat so she is really grumpy so I just might not ride untill she is back to her normal self. Any help would be apperciated because this is honestly embarassing
