I am currently working wth my boyfriend's mother's horse. Free-a ( Thoroughbred mare chestnut) was ridden regularly about two year ago, and then hasn't been since. She is a big lovebug (excellent ground manners) but has so much energy. She is seven years old, and voice trained. We let her go out into the riding ring, and she gallops around for about five minutes. Then, we lunge her for about another ten, depending how she is that day. She's fine being tacked up, but as soon as you get on she's ready to go once again. Do you think this is a problem of her not being worked with, or something else. SHe just doesnt want to stop, and gets WAAAY too excited. Any suggestions?
