Well my friend is scared of her 14.3 hand appy/tb cross she's 9 years old..
So she's riding my show horse. So I rode her today (i'll get video tomorrow)
I rode her in a D-ring english bridle, running martingale, tekna A4 jumping saddle (it's my friends), and boots, she was acting up as in (throwing her head, sidestepping, crowhopping at a canter)my friend used her as a barrel horse from 5-6 and she wasn't fast enough. So from 6 1/2 till now she's been a jumper and has down basic dressage well she took a bad fall and she's been scared of her. So for the past 8 and a half months she's got away with EVERYTHING
I'll get videos tomorrow.. but any advice? I'm not scared of her I'm used to powerful disrespectful horses but my friend doesn't want anything rough..well
I believe in light reins heavy leg with her the slight touch of ur leg no matter from a halt, walk, trot, or canter she takes off
