I have an 17 year old appy mare.
She does know how to ride, she knows back up, and is mainly just a pleasure horse. But I havent riden her for two years. Yea I know that's REALLY BAD!
But when I get back from MO (in a month) Im going to build a nice round pen, and begin training her. I rode her just before we left and that didnt go to well. She isnt really use to the saddle.
So what are some tips and methods you got that will let me be in control while riding her?
She always goes towards the pasture. That's why I want to ride her in the round pen. HELP! I really want to start riding her again. But I don't just want to throw it on her back and risk getting hurt. Last time I did that I nearly got hit by a motocycle.
