My mare is seven years old, and she has such a way of munipulating you into getting what she wants. She is a complete sweet heart and is very lovey, but she is such a stubborn mare. At first when I got her she wouldnt get on the trailer, only she wasnt scared to get on the trailer. I made a pin around the trailer and put her food in there, she wouldnt get on it until I tured around and walked in the barn, after I did this she would walk ino the trailer and eat her food like normal. It took a month until she wouold get on a off the trailer with out problems. I have learned that unless I inforce ground rules, such as backing her up and spinnign her around, then she wll listen to what I am asking her to do.
Does anyone have any ideas of some ground work I can do with longing in order to inforce dominance over her. She's not an aggresive mare at all, she is just stubborn, and has no respect for me, no matter how hard I work with her.
