first time owner questions
hey, my horse I have just now used to be a carriage horse, so her transitions are not too great. She sticks her nose out too at times so how could I stop that?
She's also been brought back into work recently as I had an injury caused by another horse, and I havent been doing heavy work with her, just light to get her fit again, but she has started putting her ears back when going into a transition, even without the saddle and I don't know why she would be doing it because her saddle fits her fine, and she does it when bareback aswell.
Id also quite like to get her onto an outline once her transitions are sorted but im not sure if it's possible as she used to be a carriage horse. Im a first time owner so I havent really had much experience with problems like this.
Also, her hind legs click all the time, but she doesnt show any signs of lameness or being sore, she's pretty natural with it haha. But is this a problem or going to be a problem in later life? She is 11 years old just now.
Answers will be well appreciated :)
