Respect and trust in a round pen, work , and work, and more work you will be surprised how soon your baby wants to come up to you, and when she does, work some more....go slow it take time...soon you will be able to walk right up to her and touch her all over....stick and a string are a great training method aswell, as soon as you can touch ...rub with stick....all over...repeat and repeat and repeat...
Training little ones is a process, you can do it alone, you dont need 3 people...but you do need a smaller area, round being the best.
Everyone is a trainer, lol ....there is no one out there , who is perfect and knows everything, all horses, have their own issues, work them on one on one basis.
You dont need to pay anyone, to come in and do it, unless you are truly uncomfortable with your baby... Im doing a 14month now, and she is coming along super nice..
Everyone has their own way of training, I like to do my one, I want then use to me, the way I want them. She will be my 2nd one, my first, living until she was 32....
Good luck, and just be patient...dont spoil, dont starve, dont trick, just be a human in charge, she will come around I promise...:)
