training issue

Hey folks ,I just wanted to thank you all for the input on this mare. You all have good knowledge on horses, which is evident from all the different views on this issue, And i will try your advice on this issue with my mare, as i have been doing most of what you all have said since bringing her back home, But i will add that as far as a trust issue with her im not in the belief that it is lack of trust . As i can take her out under full tack and she will follow me anywhere igo and that is with out a lead on her. And she will do the same if not tacked up, I only have this issue with her when im in the saddle and it is only when just a 1/2 mile of the house or barn going eather way, I spep out of the saddle and she will fallow me with out any issues at all. I have worked her so many different ways that i think i may have her a bit confused so im planning on just stopping and then starting over on basics for a while then get back in to the saddle again , and thanks again for all the input Dave

wow! im not getting into this thread because as happens too often, there is more a battle of knowledge rather than everyone offering their piece of advice. and i really dont think bringing the OP's punctuation into it is very good at all luvs2ride. it isnt necessary on this site to have perfect punctuation :roll:

dave - welcome to the forum :) as much as i would love to say some things here, im afraid too lol good luck with whatever you try and i hope you get your issues sorted out :) the only thing i will say that both quarreling posters have some good ideas and i would suggest working on some bonding ground work with her before you take her out again. as for the rest, ill leave the others to battle it out lol no offence to the other posters i just dont want to get involved ;)

No, I wasn't having a go at you I Love Lane. My response was not meant to be nasty or mean, I was just giving a point. :)
