I have a 5 yr old quarter horse X mare. Bred, raise , trained by myself.
I know its mostly me to blame but I can't stand her anymore. As a baby she was the "baby" spoiled rotten. I noticed she was become a brat around 1.5 yrs old so I became very strict with her not allowing her to stop when she wanted. No nuzzleing ect.. Ohawna was the perfect horse for nearly 2 years and now she is a total grrr.
No respect for any gates, myself or anything. On the haltered and on led, it only takes a firm no and at most a slap to the shoulder to get her off and she's fine but she runs you over at the gate when getting other horses out, and will break threw other gates to get to me.
When riding she has no impulsion, 3 laps around the ring and she's done no matter how much leg, crop any aids I use she doesnt budge. Is this a lack in respect or is she confussed?
Have tried transitions, patterns everything to keep her intrested but doesnt seem to phase her. She just loves hacking , that's it , but she needs more arena work done obviously.
Please help, Im at my last ends with her and almost ready to give up.
