Hi, I have a 5 yr. Quarter Horse that I am currently trying to train for barrels. The key word being trying. When we are trail riding she is pretty good. I don't usually have to ask her more than twice to go faster than a walk. When we are riding in the pen or working on barrels she doesn't want to go. It takes sooo much work to get her going and sometimes she just stands there. I have tried pretty much everything that I can think of and read a few posts on the other threads and tried some of those too. Nothing seems to work. I have tried spurs, whip, crop. I have tried kicking and just squeezing. I have tried the squeeze, cluck, spank. It doesn't matter how easy or how hard you whip her or how much leg pressure you use. I haven't tried treats just because the guy that was helping me with her told me not to. She has been given a clean bill of health by the vet and had new shoes put on last week. She just won't do anything. If you keep leg pressure on her or keep spanking her until she goes she just starts doing little bucks tossing her head and still won't go. I have checked all of her tack and everything seems fine. The trainer just said that she is lazy and needs work but I can't work her if she doesn't respond to anything. I can't send her to the trainer because I don't have the money right now. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
