    What to do with Penny when she arrives

    I am a new horse owner. Penelope will be delivered this Sunday. I have consulted with a trainer but she is unable to start until mid April. I have been doing a lot of reading on this forum and have decided that some ground work will be in order on top of grooming and just spending time with her. I will not be showing or anything. I would like some ideas as to what ground work is and what tools I will need to work on some before mid April. Details are a must please as I have little experience with any of this. Thanks!!!

    How old is your mare, and how much experience/training has she had?

    If you have an interest in natural horsemanship you could join Parelli Connect free for a month and have free access to the Level One to view over the internet.

    It is worth viewing anyway.

    I hope you have a lovely time owning your own horse, how exciting.

    I'm sorry I should have included that. She is 9 years old and is actually a very gentle sole. She is very well broke.

    Will you be boarding her? Will she be with other horses?

    She will be staying on my property. As of now she will have 2 goats for buddies while my husband is still on the search for a horse for himself.

    Give her lots of time to get used to her new home, the goats, you! Spend time with her, grooming her and mabe take her for walks around your place to get used to things, it is also a good way to get to know your horse. As for ground work, if you have a round pen or just a fenced space where you can start lunging her, as you are not that experienced yet you will learn lots from your horse, watch the body language, have a lunge whip, carrot stick and start working her on the lunge at a walk, change directions, make her stop, turn, just make her focus on you and make sure that you are the leader at ALL TIMES! I am sure you guys will get to know each other really soon and you will learn from each other! Good luck and enjoy the time with your horse.
