    If she cooperates on nice quiet trail rides, that might be something to do. It would get her mind off whatever is bothering her.

    Great. I am glad to have helped. Just remember to always set yourself and your horse up for success with each exercise. I would also recommend rfdtv or what ever channel is available in your area and get ideas for exercises. But start with a plan. Establish direction, establish a change of direction, move her feet forward backward left and right establishing yourself as a fair and confident Lead mare. Then have fun. Be creative and keep us up to date on your progress.
    Just remember to establish that direction first so you can use it to keep her off of you so you are both safe.
    Oh, and just an extra point. I do think 20 minutes doing circles is WAY to long. Understand that may be ok for that horse that is ready to be prepared for a show but your girl is green and needs a starting point to build from. As a matter of fact I never let my horse do more than about 5 circles at a time. Changing directions keeps them thinking about you. And the thinking side of her brain is what you want her using. When you get started let me know and I will give you some really good exercises that will be safe for both of you to get you started.

    Is this the horse that you have pictures of in your "barn"? If so, she looks like a nice girl. I would just slow down on the circles and trail ride and have fun. You can get back to other stuff later. She is a nice looking mare. I hope she does better for you.

    If this is still going on after 3 years, and is getting worse, I would suspect your handling of this horse is the culprit.

    Best to get a trainer to help you.

    Have you tryed any natural on the ground horsemanship? Sounds like she has a major refusal to go!! Maybe she needs some training on the ground in forward movement? Lunging for respect maybe, sounds like she has a major disrespect issue of who is in control!!

    i completely agree, and that is actually what we worked on today! I had watched some informative videos last night on youtube of groundwork, and put that to use this afternoon! I could really see a difference as well, and as I continued, I realized I really had, in a way, been letting her walk over me too much! Even when we would walk in and out of gates, she would rush ahead of me. And I USED to let her get away with it! But today I actually scolded her, and made her walk back through again properly.
    I could deffinately tell the groundwork for today worked, and lunging tommorow:))
