Question Training a 2 year Old for trail rides

My 2 year old, Piccadilly, is doing great walking and running around our property with me. We live in a rural area and I have plenty of free space to take her. But, she gets a little pushy sometimes and is hard to work with. Plus, there are wild horses down where I want to take her. Thirdly, our filly Bonnie always winnies for her when their more than 30 feet away from each other. How tdo I train Piccadilly to go on trail rides avoiding or solving these problems? Thank you! Your help is VERY apprecaited!

When I first start taking my young horses out.... I use two leads... one with a chain shank and the other without. That way I only have to use it if I need it. As for the wild horses.... I don't know what to tell you there.
But for the two not liking being seperated... It would actually be good for them to be seperated.

Do you have a trainer ??
    05-17-2011, 11:06 PM
No I trained her myself. And if I do say, Piccadilly isn't half bad :)

Ok, this is getting ridiculous. You don't know a SINGLE thing about this girl except that she's 13 and training a horse. You have no idea of her skill or experience. Not everyone HAS to have a trainer. Yes it's a good idea, and probably advisable if the horse is developing bad habits, but it is not the END all of advice. You have no idea who's helping her. I was 14 when Zierra was born, and trained her entirely myself with zero issues because I'd been around horses my entire life.

This is getting as bad as the "DON'T BREED ANYTHING" threads.

I don't have a trainer but I have a really good friend who gives me steps and pointers on how to train her. She comes over 1 time a week to help me train but she hasnt been over for like a month because of foals who are expected

Thank you Macabre :) I have been around horses my whole life too and I plan on being a vet for horses and small animals. I also got $200 worth of horse training and riding lessons last summer

1- she is 13
2- her horse is 2
3- she said 'i am still a little new to this training method'
4- her and her horse are having issues [separation anxiety is pretty serious imo]

I never said you HAVE to get a trainer, but I think it would be a very good idea in this situation. Way to blow way out of proportion a simple comment, I was just trying to help.

OP, I don't want you to get hurt riding your 2yo around wild horses by yourself.
