My new mare has been doing very well i'm just having diffecultys(sp?) getting her to back up. Tapping her with the wip doesn't affect her. I've tried the chain but it makes her more anoyed then just a normal halter. Saddly I don't have a small enough rope halter yet and I have lunged her once with a rope halter and she did good. What would you use? Is there a certain rope halter that works the best?
Also the BO came through the arena to bring the horses in and my mare totally changed. She would not stand and was having a fit that I wouldn't let her go by the BO she would take a step forward to go say hello I would back her up. Is that a sign of the BO giving her treats or is it just from the BO being the person that feeds her?
She listens to me very well but when the BO came in she totally ignored me.
She listens to me and sometimes other people but mainly me.
