Thanks everyone! I will give all the above a try...and as you said, Kevin, a trainer might still be a good idea for "rounding her out."
I actually got this horse as a 2 year old, and they said she "might be in foal" (as a TWO YEAR OLD
) and was "broke to ride," even though she still reared on the lead rope
Thank goodness she wasn't in foal, since she's a baby herself. We've come a long way, but we both have a lot more to learn.
I have some free time this fall, so I'll see how we can progress with the neck reining.
And any more tips are welcome, keep them coming!
