I just changed my horses bit to a snaffle since she has been having issue fighting the bit when I want her to go certain directions.She only wants to go her way and so we have been working on it. Anyways,this evening I went out to go ride and she was doing great since she had another horse to follow BUT if she doesn't have any horse to follow or if she doesn't see her goal,which would be going back to see her friends she will have a fit. I have been doing circles with her and making her stand and be patient. Sometimes this doesn't work.
Also I was reaaallly excited because it was the first time my horse and I were actually galloping.It was a little scary cause I never did before. I was keeping good balance untill the end when I wanted her to slow down(I was losing balance and leaned forward and grabbed her mane).She was so worked up she didn't want to stop running but I did and I finally got her to stop.
My husband went to go take care of the horses since he was done riding and my horse was not liking that her buddies were not near her so she tried to go her way and I made her go the other way. I finally got her to pay attention and thought we were getting somewhere untill after a few circles we started heading back and she tried taking off while I was going to do a small trot and then walk. She didn't like that and snorted and reared some which scared me. I purposely yanked the reins back that time and she stopped and we walked back. I lunged her afterwards and she bucked and stuff and I got mad BUT I didn't take it out on her. She only likes going one way when lunged and she gets nervous and began to poop. She had a bad experience because my old friend use to hit her all the time because well my horse isnt found of being lunged.
She might be heard bound.She is only like that while riding. She doesn't mind if she is away from them if she isn't saddled up.
I need some help with her. She has been spoiled and I am trying to fix that. I do not have money for her to go to a trainer and no spare money to take lessons so I am taking it into my own hands. I am hoping someone has some advice.
Sorry for the novel.
