My mare will stand tied but she paws the ground the whole time. I have been ignoring her and just leaving her standing there and only approaching when she stops. We haven't gotten over it yet though.
I had to teach her to tie and I used the same method which worked wonders, within 2 sessions she stopped pulling and throwing her temper tantrums except the pawing. Should I keep at it or try another technique? What other techniques can I use? Anyone else have this problem?
Its annoying because 1) she tears up the ground, leaving ruts and kills any grass. 2) She is already a pushy disrespectful horse 3) sometimes I feel like she is going to paw me the way she reaches her foot out and up occasionally and 4) its just plain rude horse manners.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks! And we are already doing lots and lots of ground work and yielding to pressure exercises. She was a very spoiled horse and I have a lot of work to do with her still.
