I have a 6 month old filly that is full of spunk and doesn't have much respect/manners. What should I do to teach her some manners and start working with her in general?

I have found that target training works really well. It's kind of hard to explain, so if you dont know what it is I would look up some videos on YouTube. It's also important to praise her only for good behavior and take things slowly :)
I would work on walking her around. Making her stop when you want to stop. Make her stand, backing her up. Picking up feet etc. Just lots of ground work.
