Guess she'll be going to retraining. We FINALLY got a bridle on
her, and she reared up on my son. If it wasn't so dry here, I'd
find a marshy area and run the H**** out of her in it, so she
wouldn't try that again.

They say it costs around $500/month for the training. I'll have to
see if we can work it in the budget, and get and estimate of how
many months we could expect to need it.

Guess we better wait until we get her calmed down some, before your kids come over to ride, Lori.

Wow that sounds like a horse with an attitude (maybe she's been hanging around my dd LOL). Seriously I do hope you can get her in line soon and as inexpensively as possible. Good luck.

Sounds like a horse with an attitude is right. Horses like to think they are the boss - once that gets out of them, they are much better.

Our friends own a horse ranch, and they often have to retrain a horse. Sometimes it takes a few months, other times it only takes a few weeks. Hopefully, it won't take long to retrain her.

Hope your son is okay.

My son is fine- he was riding her when she reared up- but managed to stay on through it all.

I hope you are able to find someone who can help you break her. If you were around us, my dad could do it. He loves to work with horses and everyone from all around brings their horses to him to break. He is very gentle with them and trains them very well. I'll post a pic of one of his horses if I can figure it out...lol!
