I just got a 2 year old fjord!
She was barely halter broke when the lady before me got her.She worked
With her and she is now halter broke but still doesnt like to be caught unless she is in a stall and sometimes she will try and avoid you. You have to be patient with her. She picks up her feet and lets you clean them.She will let you groom her all over. She also leads but sometimes gets in a hurry and her body will go pass mine so I turn her in a circle and then we stop and start over again. She will also back up some.
She is scared of water!
I wanted to give her a good scrub down before winter really hits but I think I might have to wait till next spring to work on that. I would still like her to get use to it. I plan on pony-ing her with Gidget once she really gets use to things and calms down.
Is there any way I can get her to calm down? She is herd bound and very anxious. She almost ran me over cause she couldn't see her friend. I have her in a stall in the barn while the paso hangs out with Gidget.
Any tips would be great. This is my first time training a young horse but I really want to do it and I want her to be great.
