Last year in April, I got a 4 year old lusitano mare who was starting to be broken in.
With the help of my trainer, things were going good, and I was riding her on the lung; in October I rode her 3/4 time off of the lung and things went well...
Until the bad weather came and I was told no to work her in the arena (we only have an outdoor one) as she could damage her tendons, bla bla bla.
With this, I haven't heard from my trainer for nearly 3 months and I feel let down and all the work we had done, and gone down the drain.
The last couple of week, the weather has been great and dried up the puddles and the he still hasn't bothered to come and see how she is, or even work her. So mum made me start working her again, and ride her.
It has been going really well as I only walk her while riding, just so she knows im on top of her.
Today, I tried to get her in to a trot, and she would stop and wouldn't move. When I would ask her just to walk on, she would buck and then walk. Is there something I am doing wrong?
Has anyone got any helpful advice that I could use that would help?
Thank you xx
