My sister and neighbor are both wanting to learn to ride properly. I usually have no trouble with new riders. A little girl down the road is only about 8 years old and I'm working with her. Im a barrel racer, and I put her on my barrel horse (just to lead) and she is a natural. She was trotting that horse over stumps in two days! By herself! But my sister and the neighbor girl are so akward and unwilling to learn. They just want to ride. Any idea's on making them a little more in tune with the horse. By the way, they are on an old tennessee walker, not my mare.
