Lizzy snorts, and prances around horses we come across while riding. They don't have to be strangers either, but if they are in our group she's fine. I think she just gets territorial of her "herd".

Wyn was borderline out of control. A few times I got off and walked her around and was able to calm her a little bit, but it was a very unpleasant experience for both of us. If it was just a look, snort, and keep going, I wouldn't care... anyway. We'll do some more rides in the next few days and see how it goes.

When I took Lizzy out alone not to long ago she was very spooky. I had the reins so tight we are talking chin tucked to the neck, any looser and she would have bolted. We only got a few blocks and I turned around, it wasn't going to end well. Some days she is just spookier than others, it's strange. But she always does better with another horse.

Welcome pheobeeliza!

Are you okay GYpsy? Car accidents can really shake you up.

Faibhe, that doesn't sound like fun, but she's never going to get better if you never ride with others.

Oh I'll definitely keep riding, no worries about that! I just hate it when we have days that feel like a GIANT step backwards. :P

Gypsy! I think you may live by me? A new girl just got hired at the Jimmy Johns by me, as a driver and she has horses? LOL that would be too funny! I hope you feel better soon, I'll have to catch on the thread when I have more time!

Gypsy, you might want to see if the other person's insurance will cover you visiting a chiropractor. I got rear-ended shortly after college and had a headache for 3 days after before I went in to a chiropractor. The accident had pushed my vertebrae out of alignment and was pinching a nerve causing my headache. Got adjusted, took a nap, and the headache was gone.

Its always good to go a doctor after an accident even if its just for insurance purposes later on.
