    Chingaz, I think the OP is looking for any advice on her horse that always runs or freaks.

    Angelsgrace - Could you maybe give us a bit more information? Does she "run and freak" just undersaddle, or when handling her as well? How old is she?

    Horses will act freakish for many different reasons. Make sure you've ruled out a few possibilities:
    - Have you gotten her teeth checked? A horse with a sore mouth can act very bad in the saddle. There was a horse at my old barn who started bolting all the time. We found out later that all she needed was to have her teeth filed.
    - Does her tack fit? Ill-fitting tack will make a horse very uncomfortable and unwilling to work. Ask someone who's very knowledgeable about tack to check it out for you. Or have a saddle-fitter from your local tack store pay a visit.
    - Does she have a history of being abused or badly trained? You may need to start from the basics with her. I would highly recommend a suitable trainer to help you with this.

    Hope this helps. Sorry if I'm way off with what you were asking.

    I was asking if any one else has problem horses,here are the answers to your Q's ok she is 15 years old freaks out at anything ether under saddle or bareback,her teeth have been done but we did have problems with that at first,her saddle has been correctly fitted and because of her frame we got a semi QH saddle, but we do think was abused.and there is a 50% chance she is a brumby,thanks

    Sounds like Loki!

    He bolted today on me today xD A marriage mobile drove past, complete with tin cans dragging and big white balloons all over the place. He spun and took off like a rocket, bucking and freaking the whole way. Took him twenty minuets to settle down again. He's a pretty spooky boy so it was expected.

    I find that making him do patterns does wonders. I have him do a circle pattern around the trees in the field. It relaxes and makes him more flexible and responsive. LOTS of ground work will also help improve her spookiness as she becomes used to new things. A bag on a stick is a great way to start x)

    We had a horse who used to be silly like that. Not always at the same thing and often because he was on his own and that was his way of saying, he was out of his comfort zone. A very annoying a somewhat dangerous way, I must admit.

    We found out along the way, that some of it was programmed into him. We spoke to the previous owner one day, and we had motorbikes go along the road behind us and he took no notice. She was amazed, because, she said, he always freaked and bolted for home with motorbikes. The problem was, she had decided he would be afraid of certain things and so he was. When I was on him, I didn't act any differently no matter what was going on and if he did play up, he got the 'get over it and get on with things' message.

    He did get a lot better, but he was never going to be a 'solo' horse. He needed to be with company .
