I feel like I'm posting every other minute on here and sometimes it's embarassing because I work with my horse and we do fine but then it goes to crap again and lately it seems like it's never ending! I don't know what to do. I was working with her last night and she wouldn't stop trying to gallop and I just want to do a trot. I did my circles and she would then be good but shortly after her urge to get back to the gate came back. I'm wondering if she also thinks that going back to the gate means she is done working since I always get off and walk her somewhere away from the horses so my tack won't get damaged by the young ones.
I think all I can do is get lessons. I think it's my only hope because if I get one thing down another problem seems to pop up and yes,it can be a bit frustrating at times. Of course there is no way I'm getting rid of her because she doesn't listen to me half the time. I just think that I need to be shown some things WITH my horse and not learn on someone elses's horse.
What do you look for when trying to find a good trainer. I don't want to have someone that says they can teach me when they don't give lessons really. I had something similar happen and well it never got me anywhere.
