I am new here. I currently own my own horse, and I am now taking on a project horse for the summer. She is a full saddlebred with champion bloodlines, but she has a bad attitude and really bad habits.
We are trying to make her a dressage or hunt seat horse. (She is definately not a saddle seat.)
Some of her problems include:
Kicking out while riding,
just stopping while riding (its to prepare to kick out, but we have been able to stop most of the kicking),
extreme stiffness on both sides, but mostly to the left.
Also, what are some great ways to build muscle on a horse?
Many people have given up on her, but I know she could be a great horse.
Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
