Working it Out
I have been working with my horse, Gracie trying to see if the whole kicking episode was due to lack of respect or not. Have I let small things go by and major problems come from it? She has been having the laid back ear action when I fed her and I went ahead and fed. I think I was rewarding bad attitude. Then on the last ride she kicked out at another horse. I worked her on the trail when she did and we did circles and I corrected her.
So the last few days I have been lungeing her on a long line and making her run circles both ways. She seemed to have an attitude while doing this but I have seen some change in her. Then I ride her and work her with stops, back-ups and figure eights. I think somewhere along the way we had become equals but not partners. We both have had wake-up calls this week.
