Thanks for your replies everyone! your all a great help i understand that she needs proffessional schooling and i've started looking round at a few trainers but no look yet i'll keep you posted
And thanks once again
That is good advise but my concern in this case is that you have a new owner and a very insecure mom. It sounds like they are over their heads with this horse - particularly if it is a consideration on their part to put it down.
Sorry if you misunderstood what i said but she is not my only pony i have 3 others that i look after aswell, and i've had her for over a year now. I've also been riding for quite a while.
My first pony i had i schooled quite alot and with work he improved and he gave me alot of my confidence.
When we had her she was strong headed but i managed her and she gradually improved but i injured my leg a while back and had to stop riding her.i lunged her and got her listening to vocal command which she did brillantly.
All of a sudden lately though she started rearing up and running round me whilst leading her. I can hold on to her well enough but my mum is really worried that i will loosen the rope and the pony will spin round and kick me (this is how she kicked my mum). This has made my mum really worried that she might put me in hospital, my mum said she'd have her put down if she did anything to me.
Also my mum has had alot of experience with horses but she isn't strong enough to hold the mare and she doesn't trust the mare because the pony is disrespectful.
That's hopefully more in detail. Sorry for the confusion i was sketchy in my detail before.
And once again thank you for you replies i think a trainer is the way ahead.
Oh and one more thing is that selling her is difficult as alot of horses i've seen that are like her fall into the wrong hands and get cruelly treated.
