Its not that she doesnt trust you its that she is a horse and the are flight animals. You have to introduce it to her, not expect she walk over it with out hesitation.

This is not another disclaimer. Studying does work. The videos and the books. And there is a lot to be said about thinking things out. Take time to think about what you are doing and what might work What does work and what might work better. Horses are not mules and will recover from a mistake. There is a lot of good information here on the forum and in the library's. Library's offer innerlibrary loans so you can get infomation from all over the USA. I did! I learned to ride my Ginger without a 3-D teacher. I did study for a lot of library information before I got on Ginger. Always do ground work all of it.

Yes, study! Google things, questions, videos, books. Go to your town's/cities library and look at horse training (and books alike) books! You can learn from any sorts of horse books.
