Well Ill start off by saying Hello!
As you see in my status-type thing I am working on a bond with my new mare, Whisper. That include teaching her the English style of riding(she has previously been shown western but my trainer says she has also been shown english but not much)Anyway more to the point of the thread() SHE WONT STOP EASY!!! At a walk, trot, canter and cirtanly not at a gallop(haven't tried) not even on the ground in a halter! If im lucky she may stop for a couple seconds while I get off her. She also wont stand still when I mount. Most times I end up half-laying on her back on my stomach while she walks or even trots off! I ovbiously pull on the reins and sink my weight to my bum and heels(sitting deep). Mom always says if she wont stop use a one-rein-stop(seeing as she knows it) but Mom has also said we may take her to english lessons in a year or so. That may not be all that bad but I cannot use a one rein stop on her there....she also is hard to slow down she just fights through the reins.
I use a eggbut snaffle bit with copper rolers and a western headstall but an english saddle.
Any help would be nice
