    New to horses-- help me understand my mini!

    Horse won't stand in Line-Up

    I mentioned it because I know some (not all) like a tight check to keep it from flopping. And with my mare I tried messing with it, and she got so upset when asked to stand with a tight check she reared. I normally use no check at all on mine unless I am in the breed ring. Good Luck with him...
