Teaching a Weanling to Lead
I have just purchased a 6 month old filly, she's a Fresian/Paint cross and she is beautiful and very sweet, but also quite stubborn. Thanks to some outside circumstances, she doesn't really know how to lead. She knows what a halter is, and she will back and move from side to side but for the life of me I can't get her to go forward unless tempted with grain.
I have never worked with a baby before, I've owned horses for 13 years and I know how to work and train with older horses, just not one this young. All the advice I can find is how to train a foal, less than a month old, and with mine being 6 months and substantially larger I'm at a loss on how to start.
