New Horse: Advice?
Yesterday I completed the trade for a 6 year old Reg. Paint mare (They took my preg. Grade pony mare). The Paint has no manners and can't grasp the concept of "my space, your space." Walking her from the round pen to the barn last night was a nightmare. I had to push on her neck the entire time to keep her off of me. This afternoon we are starting in on her ground work (free longing, walking in hand, the basics) Does any one have any advice on other things to try?
