    She is rather experienced and her Mum is a riding instructor.
    Glad to hear she has a responsible person that can help her with this problem.

    It sounds like it might be turning into a dangerous situation so hopefully her mother can help her work through it sooner than later.

    I am surprised that her mom hasn't taught her these basics..?
    In any case if her mom is an instructor, she needs to talk to her about this problem.

    I do not know how old the OP is but maybe it is a case of the young kid not wanting to listen to mom. I have seen that a million times. Mom is an instructor and their pre-teen kid just refuses to listen to them in that way.

    Very possible, Always. The way she had a snit about her horse being herdbound tells me she's certainly not very old, and is probably the age where she still knows everything and adults are stoopid.

    Age means nothing. She does listen to her Mum, her Mum taught her to ride at a very young age. It is the fact she has a new pony and it is different from the one she rode for many years.

    If age means nothing, why did she throw a fit when just mentioned the fact that her horse is herd bound? Its nothing to be ashamed of.

    If she's been riding since a young age but has only been on one other pony till now, then I wouldn't be putting on the impression that she knows what she's doing. If you've only ridden/worked with one horse for a long time then switching to a new one will bring up some issues in your ability to handle horses. Everyone has been there.

    I have a mare that tends to be very herd bound especially when she's in heat. The other day she decided to take off on me in the arena during a lessons and near run me into the horse in front of her. Despite my pulling her in a tight circle she braced her neck and proceeded to hop sideways over to him. This was the first time she has gone to these extremes and it will be the last time. I cranked her head to my knee and spun her until she was panting and I was dizzy. When she started walking without my ok she was spun the other direction and then tied with her halter to the wall while everyone rode away and around her. She was the last one in from the lesson and sat by herself until she was calm.
    Today she was an angel. I've noticed with her most beginning bad habits can be stopped by spinning. Maybe she get's dizzy like me but no matter how tight I need to crank her we spin and then we stand until the room stops twirling.
    On the beach this past weekend she was of course in heat and decided to never ever leave Mikey's side ever! She threw her head up, tossed it around and hopped on her front end. Not ok at all so I turned her away and galloped her across the beach away from him. Then we went and played in the water, away from him, then we ran some more away from him. Then we WALKED back over to him and any stiff necks, pinned ears on the way over resulted in turning back around and doing something else away from him. After 30 minutes of this she was fine with leaving his side and had no issue during the rest of the ride.

    Maybe it'll help with your horse. Find a distraction maybe, spin him in a circle like others have suggested, wear him out so he doesn't want to run after his friends.

    I'm very sorry - but one thing that the OP (and Kayley?) have to realize is that she/they are not "experienced" riders if the things listed in the OP are problematic. Being serious and objective about the extent of your abilities is step number one.
