I'm basically starting from scratch with her, showing her what a bit is and what I want her to do with it. I haven't ridden her faster than a walk yet because she's **** near impossible to steer at a trot and I don't want to know what she's like at a canter.
Thankfully she's a quick learner at least when it comes to turning. Has absolutely NO idea what I want when I'm telling her to "whoa" though. We had a little runaway incident yesterday that really brought that home to me. I haven't trusted her out of the paddock yet, so there wasn't far to go, but it was extremely difficult to stop her even with a one rein stop.
All in all she's a great little horse though and I think she'll be a good fit with my family. It's just a little annoying to be told a horse is trained and you find out that it isn't. Good thing I'm not stupid enough to just throw a kid or beginner on her huh?
On a side happy note, she seems to be entirely done with her mouth issue. No longer tossing her head, rearing, clamping her mouth shut or pulling it away. I actually got her to open her mouth yesterday with no problems. Working on the tail issue now..... Wish me luck!
