Ok so I started training my new 4 year old mare last week. And we put the saddle on her and she saddles like a pro. I don't even have to put a lead on her. On the first day, she bucked a few times, quit and went to eating grass. The second time, she didn't buck at all. I was really surprised. Anyways, I wanted to try to get her used to a bit but when I went to let try, she just raised her head and tried to back up. I let her smell it and figure out what it was, I tried molasses and she just turned her head. When I try to even touch anything to her mouth, she gets upset and backs up and throws her head. Any suggestions on how to get her to let me touch her mouth? Because she also needs to be wormed, but she doesn't like that either when I try.
Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated.
