So...lol, having addressed the issue that my horse is not ready for a curb bit due to the fact that she only direct reins...
How do you teach a horse a horse to neck rein?
Or really, first of all, is this something feasible for a person who hasn't had horses for 10 years? LoL, if not, feel free to say so and I'll send her to the trainer. I can admit when a job's too big for me. I was actually going to send her for training this fall, but after having worked on ground manners all summer with her, I feel like we've made leaps and bounds.
She is a 3 year old TWH, direct reins very nicely, and has about a 1 hour attention span for training sessions (lol, don't judge...it was 15 minutes at the beginning of the summer).
Is she ready...or, am I ready?
