So Spirit and I have come a really long way. I think I've finally gained her trust riding and we are doing really good together. She neck reins perfect and you barely have to tell her when to turn, even at a canter. However we've been having two problems. When we get to a certain point away from the farm she'll plant her feet and refuse to go any further. I don't wanna be mean and keep kicking her or keep yelling at her to go or anything like that, I'd rather work on this in a more natural horsemanship approch. If I get off and let her on she'll follow, but not when I'm in the saddle. Her other problem is that she hates standing still. She'll start backing up or dancing around, and when I do get her to stand still she paws the ground. Its not horrible, she just seems super nervous when she's still. She's perfectly fine when were moving. I know she's still a little herd bound or mate sick, whatever you like to call it, but she's getting better. She's starting to trust me as a leader and its made a huge difference.
Any ideas? I'd like to stick with a natural horsemanship approch if possible. I'm thinking this is something that might just take more time.
