She is too green to do this. She must first learn to 'follow' her nose. If you cannot even guide a horse, 'working' it by side-passing and making circles is not even remotely possible. I would also NEVER let any horse 'drag me to the gate'. The object should be to teach a horse to 'stay between the rider's legs' and 'stay between the rider's reins'. Then, leg yielding exercises are an attainable goal instead of an impossible dream.
That is why I said to do what is appropriate for her education. I have zero way of knowing what the horse knows.
Of course I didn't literally mean to allow the horse to forcibly drag the rider to the gate as well. Posted via Mobile Device
