well, I'll usually work on giving to pressure for a while.
when they're good at that. I tie them. and go where they cant see me, but I can see them and have them stand for about 30 mins, and gradually work up to longer time. I like them to be able to stand tied all day.
if they pull back, don't get excited. I usually have a knife ready incase I need to cut a rope, but it's never happened.
I let them pull back. my mare used to.
I tied her to a very solid tree, and she hasn't done it again.
Old owner used to untie her or tie her to something that would break.
yeah, was annoying.
