So when I first met her I fell in love the first ride was pretty good but now that i've had her for awhile i've noticed our personalities clash a lot! She deffinately can do what I want her for but if we don't get along as a team then im not sure that will be any good.
I love her to death but im starting to doubt that we will be able to compete as a true team.
On top of it all im not sure if she will be able to be just a nice trail horse outside of the gymkhana ring. She can deffinately kick but in competition once trained but out on trails she acts like a psco horse with absolutely no training.. I have to one rein stop her every 5 steps she wont walk. When she trots she tries to canter when we canter she tries to gallop. I do alot of one rein stops and try to keep her attention but nothing seems to work with her I get blisters from trying to fight her on the trails. In the arena she's a whole different horse . Still jumpy and forward moving but more responsive even then we have a whole lot of clashes and recently she's picked up bucking. I do ground work with her before every ride but still she is extremly pushy when leading but in a arena again she's completely different. I don't know what to do anymore.
I'm starting to doubt that I made the right desicion or that I jsut jumped into it to early before trying her out more.
I know its my fault for not doing more research on her but she honestly has done a transformation from the day I met her she was easy to control there veyr forward but controllable
Here I dread going to ride her because its never relaxed its always a fight
I duno what to do
If anyone has any advice it would be great.. if not I might just have to find her a home with someone she can get along with better ..maybe an endurance home...
