Teaching a Green Horse Leads?
I have a mare who is arond 11 yrs and has been a trail horse for most of her life. When we bought her a year ago, she hadn't been ridden in 5 years. She has been coming along wonderfully so far, and she's impressed me at the rate she is improving everyday. However, now I have to help her work on her leads, and I'm not too sure on how to go about that. She gets them most of the time, but usually I just ask her for canter and hope she gets her lead. When she doesn't get her lead, I have to simple change to try and get it. It may take two or three tries before she gets it though.
Is there any excersizes I could do to help her with getting her leads properly the first time? (: thanks!
