If you were perfectly capable of doing it yourself. You never would have posted this, and it'd already be done.

Get rid of the horse before she hurts you and kills your baby.

We do get it mustang, but if you are pregnant, it's not necesarrily something you should be taking on yourself at this time. Accidents do happen as I said before and if she were to buck with you in range you're definitley able to take a hoof to the stomach and lose your baby. It's not being harsh it's the TRUTH. Help the horse, help yourself with the baby. Just try and make a good decision for all...

Mustanglover, you are obviously not listening to some very experienced horse people here. The only suggestion I would have is hit your local librabry, find training books and videos, there is an online video rental someone mentioned that rents out all the big name trainers video series. I for one will not give any advice other than get a horse more at your level or get the books and videos. I'm not going to give specific advice that might just get you killed or a miscarriage...

Hagon, I hope you're right

You are being a bit defensive here and I can understand that given the tone of some of the posts. But when you ask for advice here on the 'net or in the real world it's kind of juvenile to get all upset when people tell you something you don't agree with.

People are worried that a pregnant woman shouldn't be working with a horse that isn't reliable. Yeah, I can see that. Being both a nurse and a paramedic I know just how easily a 1000lb critter can hurt a person, much less your unborn child.

People are simply saying that if you haven't got a job, can't afford a trainer for the horse that isn't reliable AND you are pregnant you should sell the horse so you will not be hurt. Yeah, I get that too.

Ya know babies are a lifetime commitment, and if you can't afford a trainer for your horse then perhaps it is time you gave yourself a bit of a reality check.

And I dought she's going to hurt me, she's more likely to hurt my cuzin then me. Becuz im around her every day and im strong then my cuzin and the people at the barn that im at to work with her. I aint dumb with horses, im just trying to do the best for my little girl. She take's and under stands her bit. I just believe she's had trama in the past from former abouse. And I know she has, cause when I bought her, she was in a muddy paducked with a bad case of slipper foot. Which she didnt have her feet done all winter
You've been around horses since you six, but you've never had a horse with this issue before, but this is your first horse... You make as much as sense as giving a blind guy a lisence.

THAT being said... If she's afraid of the saddle, it's all training. Put it on the ground in a pen with her until she's okay with it. Hold her while she sniffs it in your hand, and when she's okay with you holding it while walking around her, very slowly put it on her, folding up all the girths and cinches and stirrups, so nothing falls on her and scares the ever living sh*t out of her and makes her run into you because she's a horse and even though she knows you, they still react to natural instincts and if you're in the way of her fight or flight reaction, that's too bad.

Best of luck, but I seriously think you need to re-think owning a horse.

While I do understand financial struggles and.limitations, you said you have a trainer willing to work with the horse for free......so what excuse do you have now?

she's not broke I could ride my gelding last year bareback but he was green broke but when the saddle was on he wouldnt do a thing. Now he's broke and I can ride him with a saddle and bareback.

My moms three year old was dead broke and I can ride him with nothing on, no bridle or halter on. He's a mustang and he was trained and dead broke by the time he was three they trained him for a month then sold him. No one could get near his head/neck/ears or anywhere behind his ears. Now almost a year later he only has a problem with his ears.

get a trainer or sell her to someone who can handle her and break her.
