Well I saddled her up and my son got on her and she acts very green in the bridle as in acts like she knows nothing. They said they ride her in a hack or Bosal cause she don't like a bit in her mouth so I got a hack, Anyway, I lead then for about 2 miles out on the trails behind our house and she walks out nice and has a great level headset, yells for other horses now and then and watches everything, I turned him loose a time or two and he rode her along fine but when going to stop she takes several tries to get her to stop, same with turning, no neck rein at all, direct rein only and green as heck with that. So today I saddled her up and got on her in the backyard, my first time on her with a saddle, I had just been on her the once bareback for just like 2 minutes, well today she stood there great while I saddled her, and got on, then I tried to get her to walk out and she just turns her head and looks at me, I finally get her to turn a little then she stops her foot and shakes her head and starts backing up like she is getting mad. I waited til she stopped and was standing calmly then I got off and tied her up still saddled and came in here to let my nerves settle. I am so disappointed. I found out the girl I got her from is a horse trader so who knows what is true about the mare and what isn't. So I have this beautiful mare I can't ride and can't afford a trainer. Somebody just shoot me.
