First, a few questions about my boyfriends cow horse:
1. I tried to teach her to "send" in between me and the fence. She would send just fine, but walked literally 2 inches from me. Then, when she would yield her hindquarters on the other side of me, she would scoot back and stand behind and beside me. So, I would have to take a step back to send her the other direction. How can I get her to send farther away, and not move Benind me?
For my horse, I have quite a few more questions! Haha.
1. When I'm lounging her and I ask for a direction change, she won't turn in toward the fence like I would like. She HAS before but not on command. Usually, she turns and runs across the pen and goes the other direction. A few times. She has ran across pretty close to me, with ears penned. I whip her butt when she does this, but I really want her to turn toward the fence.
2. I'm working on her a lot with neck reining and she is doing okay, but sometimes when I touch her neck with fhe rein, she will just stop like I pulled back. I'm leaving a loose rein and use really soft hands, but I'm not sure why she is just stopping.
I think the biggest problem is her turning, running through the middle of the pen near me and Penning her ears. She is a dominant horse anyway, but she joins up with me willingly has never offered to kick out at me. She is extremely respectful, just not when I ask her for a direction change.
I can maybe post a video if it would help!
