So here's the deal. Sissy is 5 years old, and a very smart mare.
She already knows the command to pick up the pace, which for me is clicking with my mouth.
Yesterday I was trying to work on the 'whoa' command with her, and she doesn't understand it at all. I would lightly pulll back on the reins and say whoa, but she wouldn't stop. And some of you may have read my previous post about 'i'm sick of it'. I put a tie down on her and she stop like a dream when I applied even a little back pressure on the reins (but when I let go, she immediatly began walking).
So does anyone have any advice on how to get her to stop on the command whoa?
If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
