So heres the deal. I am working with this 2 year old filly for my friend for the next week because she will be gone. My friend wants me to just lunge her horse around. Well there is a problem.
Right when your leading the filly into the arena she will want to start trotting or fast walking on the lead line or lunge line (whatever I choose to lead her in with) and no matter how many times you say whoa or put pressure on her halter she wouldn't stop and will do tight circles around you. Im thinking she is very nervous and moves away with her anxiousty. Is this a sign of disrespect possibly?
So, is there anyway I can help this filly calm down before each session of work and get her to halt and wait for my command to move out.
I know this really isn't my problem but I really want to help out my friend and all of the youngsters I have dealt with know enough to listen to my command of whoa and stay still.
