Yes, Virginia, it takes a LOT of time to train and perhaps 5x as much time to RE-train a bad habit out of them.

Thanks, its a very helpful site :) I still think you should be getting a Trainer to help with this situation. Kitten Val said it " Lessons often do miracles." :)

How is she on backing up? I would do some work in a round pen on backing her up from the saddle. Get on don't even ask her to move but ask her to go backwards. Once she does that well ask her to WALK a few steps...then ask her to go back. Repeat...repeat...repeat. Often horses that have an issue with backing up also have issues with stopping...to them their is but on direction...go go go forward.

Here is another trick ask for more go than whoa. Keep her moving. Move her till she is tired of moving and make her move some more. Make her move till she is begging to stop. The reward becomes stopping. It may take a little bit but that does work too. If you don't feel comfortable with any of this get a trainer.

I've never heard of a one rein stop before. I've read the link but still don't really get it. I mean what's the difference between a one rein stop and turning the horse? Like I said I've never heard of this before so please the more details the better!

She's fine with backing up but i'll try the stopping is a reward thing.

I asked before but you didn't respond. Does she know how to flex? Do you know how to flex her? A one rein stop is very similar. You turn their head to the side and wait for their feet to stop moving and give or create slack in the rein. She needs to stop moving first. When she gives is when you let go of the rein. Unlike turning, you let go when the horse turns. By holding and waiting, she will try to find a different answer than turning. I would make sure she understands how to flex first on the ground.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

I don't know how mustangs are but if she is hotblooded like an Arab or TB, that might just make her more excited or energetic. It would work if she's more like a QH. If she is a forward or go go go horse, I think I would try using backing up first.

Essentially with a one rein stop you want her to basically end up with her nose right by your leg. Turning you're just looking for the direction change.

If she takes off your best bet is to spiral her down into the emergency stop. So start turning let the circles get smaller until she stops with her head on your leg. This will stop her accidently going over!

I think before you ever get on a horse you should know how to do a one rein stop. That can save your life. It is like your emergency parachute in skydiving...learn it.
