Unhappy Frustrating! lol.

Well, as probably most of you know, I've been having issues with my *witchy* mare, Savannah. I'm totally willing (WANTING!!) to sell her, for cheap, just to find her a home. I have even looked for "replacement" horses. And I've found 3 that I like... lol. Well, mom think Parelli *scoffs* will in her words "re-train her and will fix all her problems!" and then she'll turn into a flying unicorn and a magical tree will be her best friend! , I dont think so. Shes had these problems since she was 6 months old, and they very fixable habbits that never got fixed. Shes absolouslty and ANGEL when i have her on a line and shes been luged for a while, and I have given lessons on her! Complete doll! but it seems when i ride her she bolts, rears, and bucks.

I love her and i feel like we could be partners, but theres a barrierand i can't break it. If her problems get fixed i wouldnt want to sell her as bad! I probably would to get a Welshie that i like..... but thats not the point. Im not scared to ride her but i want to ENJOY it. Im just so darn frustrated!!

What is she doing that is so bad? Maybe there is a good reason for her to misbehave.

she's testing you. Or she's a mare... Not sure which. I have a witchy one that I give Mare Magic too... it's one of the cheaper of the mare products but it definitely seems to work for her...

my old retired mare, Ginisee, was VERY witchy when she came into heat. I started her on an injection of hormones each month and it fixed it so that we could actually do well at competition. lol

I think you SHOULD give Parelli a try. It has saved me from getting hurt a bunch of times, and the horse understands what you are asking, because you know how to ask it correctly.

Any particular reason why not?

Does all your tack fit that you use on her? Has she been seen by the vet lately? When you ride her, do you take responsibility for your movement/body? Just some thoughts...
