Taking on a quite chubby horse..

So, I don't know if this thread is pointless..but, I keep my horse at my boyfriend's farm and they also have their own horse, cheyenne, who is supposed to be his brothers. Well he says she's not "fast" enough for him, so what does he do...not a thing with her. I've ridden her a few times, but never really had time to work with her more with training my horse. Well I've decided since I really won't be showing anymore this year I'm going to work with the both of them. Cheyenne is very stubborn, she will barely lead, she hates getting bathed, if you don't show her who is boss shell take you on an adventure to places you don't even wanna go. So I guess my question is, should I basically just start her all over, or any other advice you wanna give?

I feel like I'm being some kind of native american elder, but I think that she needs a friend. She could be either bored out of her mind or hurting. Probably the first. A basic start over might be a good idea. I don't think it's a pointless question, but this answer was probably kind of pointless =)

I would start over at square one. Start with a lot of ground work and build up from there.

From scratch would be your best bet, it sucks taking a few steps back, but it'll help in the long run.

I started my mare over from scratch. She's progressing well, but we are still having "stubbornness" issues. It sure beats trying to ride a rank mare that has learned how to buck with the best of them!
