Help with Flicka
Okay, so recently my parents bought a 15hhish quarter horse mare named Flicka for me. She's incredibly gentle and sweet when you're not riding her, but as soon as you get on her she tries to rear or won't move till we kick her. I've tried so hard with her, and yes, I love her, but she isn't working.
I'm not going to sell her-- I love her too much!-- but she's been really strange. When I rode her before we bought her about four months ago she was smooth and good in the arena and trails.
I tried to work her many times, but it's not working.
Please no harsh comments. I've been riding for 5 years, and Flicka is eight herself and completely tame. I just want help.
