She dOesnt know me her new owner. The previous owners sold her because they didn't have the time to work with her + their horses. I know this can be a problem real fast of I don't nip it in the butt...so that's why I am here. Ground work ground work ground work!

Exactly :)

It's okay if she doesn't know you... as long as you keep her interested and keep her in line, she'll respect you.. then she'll get to know you over time and grow to love you.

2-3 times a week is perfect! You can still get very far and do a lot and get her thinking :)

And by do a lot, I don't mean hours and hours.. I mean short little sessions on big concepts.. like when you shy from pressure.. that's a good thing! When you give me your foot for 5 seconds and I let you put it down, that's a good thing!

Am I making sense?

I know you guys can do this :) Just gain her respect before you even think about being her friend. One day you'll just realize how much she cares for you and appreciates you without going all lovey dovey gooey with her.

Yeah I feel ya, just don't forget your main concern is being a herd leader. If you aren't.. then it'll get dangerous..

OP, if you're going to do PNH, it's got to be all the way, no steps omitted, as others've said. It's Level 1 first, in the order of the steps given. Before you even think of haltering her, you spend a half hour hanging out in her area, as described by RockinD. It's all about the relationship, & this is step 1 of it. Then, you never hide the halter, that's sneaky. And so on, as mentioned.

Plus, if you're going with PNH, you'll want to get your Level 1 skills tested, to go on to Fun & Confidence in L2, & if you can't walk up to your loose horse, showing her the halter, without her being pinny & worse, turning tail to you, you flunk!

I hate to see you get confuddled by advice that won't cause you to develop the skills to at least graduate L2!

Tons of Good Luck to you & mare!
