Post Looking for tips on training my mare

Hi everyone,
I have a 7yr old mare who likes to push me over and bite and just overall disrespects me completly no matter what I do. What kind of training methods can I use to stop her from pushing on me and disrespecting me.
She also has no "go" cue undersaddle without a fourwheeler in front of her. If I get on her back she dosn't go and backs up and sometimes bucks. What can I do to stop this as well?

Whew, sounds like you're going to need to start at the beginning with her. What kind of groundwork have you done with her?

I have lunged her but she just trys to jump right on top of me and dosnt follow cues well. Worked on the basics of backing up and moving her hindquarters and her front quarters as well. She bites when ever I try to do anything with her really besides descincitizing with the rope throwing over her back and legs and there is no problem with throwing the rope around her. Other than that, that's all I have done with her

Wecome!!!

You have so many problems and your horse is so disrespectful, I am going to suggest that you find a trainer (to work with you and not just your horse), teacher or very experienced horse person to help you get started.

You need someone to teach YOU the basics of how to properly interact with a horse. When you don't know what you don't know, you have to start with someone to help you learn from scratch.

Good Luck!!!

A biting horse is nothing to laugh at. Horses who are aggressive need experienced horse people to help correct the problem. We can't tell you or show you what you need to know over the internet unfortunately

That said I have found each horse needs a different approach depending on their body language and personality. Not all techniques work on all horses, so your horse needs a good eval from a reputable horse person.

You will not be able to progress with any undersaddle work until your horse respects you so I definitely vote for you holding off on the riding. Right now this horse needs ground work until she learns what respect is. Different horses need different methods so without knowing your horse it's hard to tell you what to do. I would suggest finding a reputable trainer to help you out.

I would not ride right now, you could get hurt. You need to regain control of the horse before you hop on again. Do you have anyone more experienced that can help or a trainer?

I'd even take a summer course at a riding stables, and just turn your horse out. Your horse has your number and will hurt you if you don't take back control.
