Whenever my 7yo thoroughbred mare doesnt want to do something, she'll run backwards. Its not just a shuffle or a step, its a full powered backward movement and no fence nor rope will stop her!
Even when I don't ask for anything, whenever she gets bored or tired she will simply reverse again. She has ruined many fences, she just crashes through them and keeps going backwards.
In the paddock she never has such disrespect for a fence!
I've tried a crop but that just makes her buck like nothing on earth.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks that could help me out with this!? I've had her for about 6 months and have been trying to get her back into regular work. Any help would be appreciated! :)
