Got my horse on tuesday, rode for 2nd time today

I rode Romeo initially when I first went to look at him and rode him for the 2nd time today. I got hit this past tuesday so he has been here for 6 days. I have neighbors who live about 1/2 mile then another who lives about 1 mile past me and both of them you cannot see their houses. My horse has never seen them, but I know he can smell them. He ' Ne he he he, or whatever that sound is called in horse terms and looks in the direction of their place. I rode him down the dirt road where the 1/2 mile guy lives. Didn't see the horses in the pasture or anything, not sure if they were back there. I left that area and when I went to make a right on the road and head the direction of the other horses, my horse wouldnt go that side. He did that for about 3 times when I went to head that way. I turned around and rode around the yard and the other direction and went back the side of the 1 mile guy and each time he acted as if he didnt wana go.

The final time I headed that side, I got him to go about halfway, then he seemed as if he was adiment that he didn't wana go that side. The guy I bought my horse from rides with that guy that stays 1 mile out and he has had Romeo on some of the rides with them. I wonder if Romeo had a bad experience around those horses or something? I know the previous owner said that of his 5 horses, Romeo was the least aggressive and that one or some of his horses would bite him and stuff sometimes. I was just wondering if its a case of he can smell a particular horse or horses and wouldnt even want to be anywhere near the vicinity of them. Keep in mind that previous owner only rode with the 1 mile out guy, I don't think their horses were ever kept in same area or anything like overnight but not sure.

Thoughts guys?

Romeo is s Gelding by the way

Sounds like barnsourness and/or spookiness. Is there someone else who can accompany you on a ride in that direction?

yeah but I was mainly feeling him out today. First ride at my house so wanted to get a feel for him just he and I.

What is barnsourness. I know he isnt afraid of lawnmowers, weedeaters, 4 wheelers, Skilsaws, ect. I have been using those things around him and he just grazes on. Also he rode alongside the rode pretty well with cars passing by.

It means he wants to stay at home rather than having to work and leave the security of his pasture.
