I absolutely have to agree with Onetoomany.. I read this earlier and thought that myself, but some people dont mind it as much as I would! And as she said, its a give aspect. There are many different methods to taking the foot, and some really good ones here too!

I agree 100%. There is no way that I would let that fly. I agree that holding onto them the best you can and making her stand is the best way. I also think that you need to be the one to this because it is going to help you build confidence and get a better feel of your horse. She needs to learn to respect you. Small steps and then reward.

My Dad said that her old owner could still ride her, and I'm guessing he is the one thats cleaning her feet out. I think half the reason she is such a problem of a horse is because she has 2 totally different people working with her.

I went out to see her today, and all I can say is wow! I got Mum to hold her so she couldnt walk forward and couldnt rub her head on me, and she stood there kinda nicely, she did move for foot around for a little bit and I did let go but I picked it up again and she let me finish the job. Still wont touch her back ones though.
