Gentle tugs? I am confused as to why any 2 year old horse anywhere in any part of training needs "reminder tugs". Those terms are like an ultimate oxymoron in horsemanship.
Yeah, she's well behaved - she's only 2. Give her some time. We've all seen the countless number of gate sour nervous wreck horses and if we're wondering where they orginate from, this would be a prime example.
And yet again, the only reason I'm being snippity is because she went off her rocker when people suggested not riding a 2 year old, and claiming she didn't say things she had and all sorts of other arguementative aspects.
