I am thinking of buying a horse from a friend who needs some ground work I already know. She's also a bit stubborn and probably a little overweight right now. She tends to just stand there and not want to move. What should I do to encourage her to move? I'm planning that if we do buy her, to put her to work on the ground lunging and get the ground work and manners taken care of and I hope some of that will help with her saddle laziness.
She's a Quarter Horse, 9 years old and a really nice horse. She's just new to horses and not sure about training or working on ground manners and aside from that wants gaited horses so after finding two TWH, she decided she no longer wants her. She doesn't get rode as much as the TWHs. I rode her once, but she was just coming in heat and was a bit stubborn.
Here she is...
What suggestions would you guys have for this? We've got Grace who's a ready to go type horse and Sugar who's buddy sour and young so we're a bit nervous on her. Jazz is a little older than our two and slower so I think she'd be perfect for my husband. Thanks!
