Thanks, Jessica... I know she has been worked with desensitizing she dosent spook at the flag or a tarp I can basicly smack her up side the head with it and shes fine she will even walk on it. There isnt much I can do with her about training. Just like with the free lunging. Everyone is always in the arena when im done cleaning stalls so I can barely let her loose.
I can do ground work also, and lunge. I also feel like im limited to what I can do, its not really a make your self at home type of barn its more like what the heck are you doing and why?...This one time I was doing ground work trying to brake her brace in the shoulders and a girl was glaring at me and watching me, I felt really acward. Like any thing I do with my horse im going to be watched and judged. But we only have jumps,cones,barrels available to us to use...I dont know how those can help with desensitizing.
And see I had thought we got past this. We were doing really well and not spooking. But then this with all three bucks just turned me inside out.
And you know this also makes me really mad! Here I was an advance begginer, only having one horse that I only got to ride once. The BO sells me gypsy tells me she no buck,kick,rear, not spooky, 15.2 does well on trails bla bla. WELL Ive been bucked plenty of times. One time the BO set me up for a buck. Gypsy was being really bad in a group lesson. I knew it was coming. The BO told me to canter BOOM shes bucking. And the BO says" yep I knew that was going to happen." YAH WELL SO DID I. But I trusted her... I sticked her the other day shes 15 hands not 15.2! She dosent doo well one trails.... I wonder what els isnt true, oh yah and every time I groom its a biting kicking frenzy, all she does is threaten... Hmmm
From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north
