Some of you might remember Gypsy, my hellz bellz. Even though we have gotten way better. But I want more from her. I know she loves me and respects me to a point. But how can I get that great bond, better respect, the willingness to please.How do I get to be the leader ALL times.
Twice now I've had to ride without horses out in turnout/in the padocks where she can see them in the arena. When she first goes into the arena she's well not exactly snorting but little ones like she's breathing so hard I hear the nostils flair. And If something gives her the chance to spook she would. So how do I become leader and have her trust me and leave her insacurities at the gate?
Also we are getting really bored in the arena. Im just bored riding like I want to ride I get all excited and then half way into it im like yup ok whatever walk,trot and canter, cirlce here, half halt here, bla blah yah know. Does that mean im just bored of riding? Or am I ready to advance in my riding/training?
I want to talk to my BO and see what she says and I want private lessons. But she's gone for awhile so ill ask you guys. Does it sound like im ready to move up?
