She wants to lead then stopps and from there we play leapfrog.. not a big deal except theyll both stop-- owner cant get his horse movin (ican get his horse movin) and from there the fight begins.. lol.
im not allowed to train this horse because the owner believes 'shes too old to need to learn the things' i try to teach her.. ive said many times *if shes. Gonna be a ridin horse she needs to know these things* owner says 'just dont ride her' the next day 'you wanna go ride the horses?' I compair it to constipation..
She knows how to stop and does it at the word 'woah' she will slide to a stop. She flexes at the poll, bends laterally, stops, neck reins, she gives to pressure, she will sidepass in hand, counter pivot, and will go through all gaits-- ive taught her to respect my space and she does this well-- she just wants to be where her buddy is.. shes buddyspoiled! I realize this and the owner doesnt want it fixed. 'Shes too old' and 'im bein too harsh' when i try to correct anything- im actually bein very easy.. i try several different things if the first thing i try doesnt work-- she is the type of horse that overreacts to everything! shed paw my head off for tryin to pick up her hooves when i first started messin with her.. i didnt slap her in the head with a 2x4, i kept messin with her feet till she got over her little temper tantrums! Lol.
Oooo you must think im fancy if you think i ride english? Lol.
i do but havent in many years.. wait.. are you sayin im bein snobby?
Oh she stands when the other horse aint movin.. shes buddy spoiled.. she stands when the other horse does.. and its different every day-- sometimes she is stuck up our geldings butt the other she wants nothin to do with him-- very wishywashy mare, lol.
