Sorry I don't no what this should go under so just putting it here.
I have had my horse since July and her old owner is one of my best friends but she is older that me and loaned bella out to me while she is at uni.
I have always known bella is a nightmare to catch but didn't think it could get this bad. I used to go and help her old owner get her in while I had my old horse and she could take ages to catch. She once took 4 1/2 hours
When I first got her she was amazing she would come walking over to me. About 4 weeks later my riding instructor moved her rising 3 filly to bella's field. Misty would come up to me on my way to bella and bella would freak out. She wouldn't let me near her if I went to another horse first. I tried to catch her for an hour and she just canter circles around me and then she would get so close she would kick I eventually got my friend to come with more food and after another 39 mins she caught. I thought that would be it but it got worse. The only way to catch her would be to get all the others out the field and out of sight and eventually she would calm down. It's really annoying because she wouldn't catch for anyone not even my instructor. She is so good as soon as you have her and bring her in though.
I'm really struggling and the others at the yard are trying to catch her and when she doesn't they just leave and it's making her worse. I can't get all the horses out the field as it is massive her winter field and she is with about 8 other horses,
Please help me
