I don't understand why some people feel the need to post such hateful replies. This post was made under the "new to horses" section and I openly admitted I know nothing about horses and am asking for help. I hope many of you are a little nicer when people ask you for advice in real life. Just sayin.

I haven't seen hateful here, at all. The replies have been firm, in a way that might "wake" you up to how differently you need to think about this situation. Just as I mentioned that you need to get the horse's attention and be "important" to her, and that she might jump and be a bit scared for a sec but she'll change her attitude toward you, you might feel a bit pushed off balance by some of these replies reminding you of your responsibility to be a leader, and of the seriousness of the situation. But, hopefully, it can change your way of looking at this horse, and how you see yourself in relation to her to not worry about her "mood" and whether the horse like's or "hates" you, and start focusing on your own consistency as a leader.
None of us, and I mean none of us, likes to hear that we are not doing enough or are doing things wrong when it comes to horses. But, there's always something to do better, and someone to learn from.
