This horse I'm helping train has a bad habit that I'd like corrected as soon as possible. I'm really new to horse training, so I'm not exactly sure how to deal with this. What she'll do is while lunging, when she shifts into a canter she starts moving farther away and eventually, pulling the rope out of your hands.
Trying to pull her back simply doesn't work. I've tried...by the time I realize she's moving farther out, she's in a near gallop and there's no stopping her now. I got a pretty bad rope burn and bought a pair of leather gloves. All though my hands won't get hurt again, the minute she breaks free she gallops away, and it usually takes quite a while to catch her again. Does anyone have any idea on how to break her of this habit?
