    Lollipop, I'm sorry for your ordeal: at least you will have a better idea what to LOOK OUT FOR next time you are in the market for a horse, and hopefully will take someone more experienced! I hope everything works out with you and your mare: find an instructor you like who is very experienced with horses and have them come work with you!

    I am sorry, I didnt read through all the posts, but do you have access to a round pen?

    It sounds like this horse needs a lot of work in a round pen. You would be literally AMAZED how a couple of sessions in a round pen will help a horse with respect. It will assert dominance over the horse and help in so many areas.

    You stated that she was extremely pushy on the ground and she obviously has no respect for you as a rider as well as on the ground.

    I hope you can work it out with her since ultimately you would be helping the horse.

    I think you need to take her back and find a more suitable match. If your submissive in nature and don't see that changing you will always have a problem with this mare. She knew what she was doing when she sold you this mare. There are much better horses out there.

    Sorry, I did not mean to insinuate that YOU were dragging anyone through the mud. After reading your post back to me, it sounds as though both parties (both yourselves and the seller) were at fault. I do not think this seller is an angel - I will not sell a rideable horse to someone without a test ride when it is even remotely feasable, and perhaps she did take advantage of you being relatively inexperienced.
    Now you know what went wrong, and how to prepare better in the future. I do wish you and your daughter well.
