Hey y'all! I have a Paint horse mare that im currently training for showmanship. We've got pretty much everything else down besides pivioting. Does anyone have any tips to maybe help me get my mare to piviot?? And also, if I push on my mare, she'll back up, but I know at our fair, a lot of tugging and pushing and pulling is something you get docked for. So I also need my mare to learn to back up when I walk into her, not having to push on her.
This is quite stressful and any tips you may have are surely going to be helpful.
You can comment stories of how you got your horse to do either, or just tips.
Thank you all, greatly appriciated! :)
