Update on a Very Fidgety Mare

If you didn't read the post from earlier this year: Ground Manners and Keeping Still She was really bad about keeping still and invading space.

Some of the issues on the ground would be stepping on toes, pushing people around, running into people, etc. She would not stop for the life of her.

A few months have passed and we've changed barns twice and there has been a drastic improvement. She now stands quietly to be brushed, doesn't move when mounted, and will basically fall asleep when I ask her to stop. I am so happy that all my hard work has paid off. I think it was a mixture of a bad barn, bad attitude, and not enough training/handling a week. But now I get out to the barn as much as I can and she's perfect. Really awesome.

I used to have issues bridling, but now she puts her head down and lets me bridle her. Sometimes she's obnoxious and will scratch her head on me, but she stops when I ask. :)

Glad to hear it has worked out so well. I hope you've patted yourself on the back.
