I want opinions. Other then mine. I was curious, how much is to much for a green horse? My little mare has had about 30 rides. But it has been awhile since she has been ridden, I don't know exactly how long. I only get to work her one time a week. Which sucks. But is better then nothing. I wanted to know how fast you think I can move. The girl who did most the riding on me told me that the little mare doesn't really like the bit much. She rode her in a full cheek snaffle bit. I have a mullen mouth eggbut bit, a smooth wire loose ring snaffle, and I have an english hackamore. All of which I can try and see what works best for her. I feel like maybe I should only work a little with her at a time. Like saturday maybe I should just figure out which bit or the hackamore she is happy with. And then work with her in it along with lunging her and doing ground work. And then maybe I should do this each time I see her until I feel she is ready for a saddle. I was told she used to rear up off and on . But nothing very high. This is something that I won't tolerate. And I will make that clear from the beginning. When it is time for the saddle I will lunge her with it on, make the stirrups move around and bump her, and make her work through all gates saddled while lunging her. After this is tackled and accepted I then want to add a rider. Just somebody to sit on her while I lunge her. Not making giving her any cues at first. Just being a passenger. I expect this is take at least a month and a half for this to happen. Considering I only see her once a week until late march or when ever I can get fence posts in the ground. What do you guys think?
