I ride a green horse who has recently developed a new habit of backing up in an excited manner when she doesn't want to do something or is frustrated.[often when I ask for the canter]
A bit of background on the horse:
She is an 11yo mare. She is a thoroughbred. She likes to work and is very curious. She is not one of those horses that picks things up really quickly and when she does something wrong a few times in a row she gets frustrated.
Background on me:
I do not own this horse but I am the only one who rides her because she responds best to me. [not bragging this is just want my trainer said]. I am patient with her and rarely yell at her etc.
Thanks in advance!
