I didn't know where to put this question but here it is. I just bought a 17yo Arab mare. I am having problems with her taking the bit, she doesn't like it when I get anywhere near her mouth with it. It doesn't help that we don't have a place to tie her and when your out alone your holding her by yourself. She even doesn't like it when I try to look at her teeth. I know the people we bought her from had said they didn't work with her much(they only owned her for a couple of months) and her previous owner let her step all over her. They also said she had gotten her teeth floated in the fall, so I was thinking maybe she's afraid thats what I'm guna do. Any suggestions with what I can do? Everytime I go out by her I rub her nose and work my way to her mouth and sorta work my fingers in her mouth and back out. Has anyone had this problem?
