I am working with a 16hh 8 year old mare cob called Ebony for a friend of mine called Julie. She has bad arthritis in her hands and would like to sell Ebony asap. So I offered to help and to learn Ebony some manners.
When she is being led from the field gate to her stable around tea time, she tends to literally pull who ever is leading her towards and straight into her stable.
I have thought of literally tugging her back and spinning her round but she tends to ignore it still, so tonight when I brought her in I slipped the lead rope in her mouth like a bit. It actually worked she didn't pull to go into the stable block. When she entered the stable block, I took the lead rope out and she pulled to go into her stable. I managed to pull her back and made her stand for a few seconds. Then gave her a pat and let her walk into her stable.
Just wondered if there is any other methods I could try on her?
