Hello Everyone, I am new to the forum and need your comments. I bought a very laid back, gentle horse that was used for kids lessons. I have had him for 9 days. He is in a 2 acre pasture by himself, no other horses around.
At first he ran up and down the fence line just a couple of times and that was it. Everything was fine until this past weekend. He is very skiddish, jumps at the slightest noise or at nothing at all. He is acting nothing like he did before I bought him. He acts like he is afraid I think.
I have owned horses before, 20 years ago and never had a horse act like this. I have not attempted to saddle him up to ride because he is so skiddish. What do you make of this? I know he was a kids lesson horse because I talked to some of the kids that rode him and also saw videos.
I do not know what to do. Do you think he misses other horses? Have any of you ever had this problem? I would appreciate any input. Thanks so much.
