Honestly, I thought this was going to be a simple task.. but when riding my prospect mustang last sunday we realized, she would follow any human around while one is on her back but when asked her rider to go.. she seems confused.
I watched her current trainer try to get her to go with some squeezes, clucking and eventually a few kicks.. she went but hesitant and it was obvious she was confused. He is a big believer in natural horsemanship and does not want to use any kind of spur unless neccessary and merely enough to let her know they are there...
He also mentioned a plastic bag on a stick.. but I'm nervous about the fear that might raise!
Like I mentioned she can be easily led around and will follow anyone walking around on the ground - from this point what would be my best bet? I plan to use her on trails and I'm most certain she will follow others - would putting her in that situation be best?
