Paso Fino doesn't know

I have a young Paso Fino mare. The problem that I am having with her is that when I take her to the round pen all she does is stand in one spot and doesn't offer to move. I can take a lounge whip and touch her on the hind qtrs, and nothing, all she does is stand there. What am I suppose to do?

Are you trying to teach her to lunge? If so start by having someone lead her around the round pen while you use the whip and lunge lead as you would if you were longing her alone after a little while have the other person walk beside her though without a lead so she is listening more to you than the other handler. Eventually when she is ready cutout the second person altogether. This may take a week or a month. Just move forward as she is ready and make sure the first step is concreted before you move on otherwise she will be going backwards.

Then go get a chair and a good book and don't pay any attention to her and do this for the next few days. Hopefully she will come and check you out but don't touch her unless she crowds you. Just move your chair and resume reading. Time spent doing this is never wasted.
