ok so I have a horse, her name is mei-li she is a 15.2hh 6 year old thoroughbred.
And I was actually ment to go to pony club today but heres the thing.... she WONT get on the float.
We have floated her many times before and we had no trouble getting her on the float.
But last time we went to pony club she wouldnt get back on the float to go home.
Then I was ment to go to a friends house to ride with her and her horse but again she wouldnt get on the float we tried for 1 hour but she just wouldnt get on even with us dangling food infront of her face.
She goes on but not all the way, she gets her front feet in the actual float and her back feet on the ramp and stretches her neck to reach the food.
I have tried just about everything e.g. Food, dressage whip, people pushing her from behind. But she just wont budge.
We live on a simple 6 acre property and have no arena or round yard so I can't lunge her but I still can't lunge her anyway because when I try to she always ends up pulling away or bucking or rearing.
She is also fine to ride and does not try to bolt, buck, rear.
I thought she could be scared because a few weeks ago I was riding her in my paddock (the closest one to the road) and I was cantering over a jump when a car came along and she pigrooted and I fell of.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME
I really want to go to pony club and shows!!
