    Reward her when she is good, when she is bad, disipline her, and act as if nothing happened, and continue on.

    I agree that she needs to be brought into work gradually. That does not mean that you should accept pissy behavior. If you ask for a walk, make sure she moves out immediately. Do not accept a slow or insolent response. Give her one nice "ask", then a "tell", then smack her roundly and get the response you asked for two secs ago. Now@!

    And, forgive me for saying this, but jsut becausde you got a new saddle does not mean it fits her. Pain should always be the first thing to consider in cases of pinned ears and other kind of bad behavior when being asked to move out. She may have need of chiropractic work.

    Can a more experience rider get a better response out of her?

    I got a custom saddle that fits her. I normally just do walk and trot with her and I ask for her to lope just a very little bit, for only one side of the areana. I am not so much concerned with her ear pinning, it is she sometimes kicks when asked. Thanks.

    Does she kick out when lunging? If so, I'd get on her hard for that. Kicking out on the ground shouldn't be tolerated as it can get you hurt.

    Sometimes she does kick while lunging, only when asked to lope.

    Is she saddled when lunged?

    To me this speaks either disrespect or pain. Get on her for kicking out.

    No, she is not saddled when lunged.
