Re-breaking an 11 year old ex-racer?
Brandy- thoroughbred mare,11 years old, 15.1hh.
She's not mine but i've been looking after her for five years. Most people say she's crazy, but we have this bond, and she trusts me more than anything. I really want to ride her, to prove that she really can be a good horse, but she hasn't been properly ridden in atleast seven years and even then it was racing. So, I think I may have to re-break her. She is a bit of a "mare-ish" horse. She has never bucked or pigrooted, but she has a tendency to rear when she's frightened, (i rode her for like five minutes about two years ago and she was perfect... Until the massive rear). And bolting may happen because she's an ex-racer, and a bloody fast one (dont worry, I will be in a round pen). Obviously im going to have someone helping me. But I just need to know what to do, some steps, some advice or even opinions on whether I should or not.
Please help, its something im passionate about.
