Serious Question

So I have been given the opportunity to help, essentially ‘Re-train’ a problem horse. I am totally psyched but would love to hear people’s experiences and advice. This mare, in a span of 4 years, has been ridden 10 times. So as you can believe, she has become pretty used to (and quite fond of) being a yard ornament. She has learned that getting people off her in any way possible seems to leave her ‘retired’ status in tact. However my feeling is that she simply has not had one person put enough time into her. I want to start from the bottom, LOTS of ground work, first naked then under saddle. To me, this will help a relationship to form. After ground work, I’ll get on her and see how she does.


I would love to hear thoughts so please, please leave me comments below! 🙂
