I've had my girl for less than a month so I still don't really know her that well. I have noticed, however, she can be pretty nervous/flighty. I'm not that practiced with handling spooky horses, but I've just been handling her in a matter-of-fact, "there's nothing to be scared of you silly animal" way, and it seems to be helping a lot. My goal is to event at some point (not anytime soon), and I am concerned with how she would handle cross-country or maybe even stadium (bright jumps OH MY GAH). Did any of you start out with nervous horses? Did they improve? What did you do?
