I would like to just throw this out there sense we are talkin about problems liftin feet. Nana was bein a booger at my last lesson and when I held her foot up so I could clean them she would try to set it down so I lifted her foot higher and put my body weight against her to make sure that she would have a hard time shiftin her weight towards me, and it worked for me...
Course your case is different but I thought I would throw that out there lol.
I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.
