    Angry Defination ofhard to catch: these three

    Ok so as soon as my freind said your welcome to come and ride my horses when ever you want I knew there would be trouble. And I was right. Heres the result. The three horses are Black betty, Clancy and BettaGirl. After 2hrs chasing them around a 100 acres where the grass was up to my neck in places, I gave up.

    Well... they're pretty. ^_^ I can't imagine trying to catch a horse that didn't care to be caught in such a huge pasture.

    Just a question, did you have any technique for your approach? Usually when my horses are being difficult I just refuse to feed into it. I don't go dashing off after them... just sort of casually walk over to them. If they run away again, I just casually walk over to them and repeat as necessary. If these horses aren't familiar with you, you could try just hanging out with them for a while, chilling in their pasture and letting them investigate you.

    When was the last time any of these horses were handled... much less ridden?

    Yea, just thinking about chasing horses around that big of an area makes me ache. My horse sometimes tries to run and play games when I'm holding a halter, but if I leave the halter he comes right up to me. He just has a sick sense of humor and really enjoys pressing my buttons.

    Not only did you get some exercise... they did too! In fact, you worked all three in less time than it would probably take to ride each. ;) Admittedly, riding is usually more fun.

    Toby thinks it is funny to run away too. What day you must have had.
