Hi all, I have a question to pose to all of you (horsey or non-horsey people welcome, as everyone gives fantastic advice here!) I have a 2 year old filly that I've had in my care since she was about 3 months old. She's been living with me at home for about 4 months now. Being able to expose her to so much from such an early age has been very rewarding for me.. halter breaking, leading, clipping (yikes!), loads, ties, good for vet and farrier, and even will be hitting our second show next week (she's unbroke fyi, this is in-hand showing in the young horse classes at the big hunter shows). From the beginning she's had a BIG personality. She's had the 'I'll do that, but on MY TERMS' attitude, which has made training her often difficult. She is handled daily, knows right from wrong perfectly well. I have worked on establishing myself as the alpha mare from the beginning too.. she used to get VERY grumpy in her stall with her food, so when I went in to feed her, I'd keep her away from it until I felt she was calmed down and ready for it. I've raised plenty of babies, started and backed them, and sent them back to owners or to other bright futures. My problem is that this is MY filly, and she's been the worst I've ever had to deal with. Yeah, she's a 2 y.o. filly, so I know right there is a problem (haha) but her continued defiance is starting to really bug me. I don't know if I should send her off to a trainer, sell her, or what. I have the time to invest in her, but I think she just may be too much horse for me, in the sense that I bought her because I wanted to enjoy a baby, knowing full well they are tons of work, but she's just nuts! Any opinions would be helpful.. thanks so much!
