Okay, so I seem to have a dilemma with my new(ish) Haflinger, Daisy. She's not really misbehaving, but one time I was riding her in the round pen while my friend had her gelding,Milo, who just happens to be Daisy's favorite friend, out. Well, he got loose and came running up to the pen on the side with all the trees and tall grass/weeds and made Daisy anxious until she saw who it was, she didn't really act up.. just side stepped across the pen.
Fast forward a bit.. Ever since then, she shies away from that side when I'm riding her and were going past there counter clockwise. She's fine on the ground both ways and when I'm riding going clockwise. She was fine before Milo did that.
So how do I fix this? I have made her go there, but she tenses up a bit and tries to shy away. She acts like it's nothing when I'm lunging her or walking her past there. I'm stuck. Posted via Mobile Device
