    If possible a video may be helpful of you riding her around. That way you can ask specific questions and we can see what is going on and how to help you better.

    Spur ?

    Am I wrong or don't Spurs mean go and fast? I am a bit of a green horn
    , but that is what I always have seen. I am not trying to be sarcastic, I am really asking.

    Spurs are supposed to be used for refinement, not speed. However, WP horses are often trained to stop when a spur is applied, so there is minimal seat and rein movement in the show ring.

    The people who owned the horse, did they train her in the wp. If so I would get with them to see if you could get some lessons. Like other posts said there are many different ways to cue a horse. I would get with who ever shown this horse previously and see what they do. If not you'll both be confused. Then again you could look at dvds and train her the way you prefer to cue/train her. Just a thought

    Thanks again for answers! If you search for my channel on youtube, Sleipne, you'll find a video of me riding her :) I've had a few lessons, though with a english instructor. But ir's nice with a little help anyways. Her previous owner lives over 6 hours away from us, so its a bit difficult to get her to come here :/
