Breaking the hot headed mare...
I recently bought a barrel bred long yearling mare. I want to start her lightly this Spring, then leave her till Fall.
She has the potential to get really hot, I already see it in her, and I've just done some touching work with her on the lead (she hasn't been handled much) Once she's fine with touching and such, I want to learn how to lunge and get her lunging and slowly add a bit, and then a saddle.
But I don't want to go too fast. I want to start her right, so she knows slow is good and I really want to keep her mind good.
Any tips on to go about this? Or where to start?
