So I am leasing a quarter horse mare who is turning into oir do everything girl haha. She is so calm and willing its awesome. Well monday they broighr home a like 14-14.1 hand paint pony gelding. He was scared at first so they gave him a few days to calm down so by Thursday they were wanting to start messing with him. Now thia boy is for her 9 ur old beginner so she is undeestandablly nervous and wants to be completely sure he will be good. So she asked me to pony him off hick on the trail to see how he is. He was great except that he was really pushy and wanting to fight ahead so I'd make hick push him back over ( she gave him quite the pissy look haha) and would hold him firmly till he slowed down and put him where I wanted then released and rubbed his forehead . Did I handle it right? I did havw a rope halter and he is pretty hard headed lol but was just wondering if I handled it ok.
