My mare will cross over in front, but simply follows with her back, creating a crescent shape. She will do it well on occasion, but not all the time. Also, she only does it well when up against the fence. Out in the open, she still doesn't quite understand.
Another problem I am having is her sidpassing to the left. She will do it okay to the right, but ends up going in circles while going left lol. How do I help this?
I am currently not too worried about the left, as I want her to understand the WHOLE concept one way at a time, hoping this will help.
I also did ground exercises with her today, by putting pressure on her hind and around where my foot would be with my fingers, and releasing when she moved over. This seemed to help alot.
Overall, I have her started, but please help me finish her!! Thanks so much!!
