And some horses just have their favorite people. I had a very opinionated mare several years ago that would only allow particular people to catch her. All I had to do sometimes was step into the pasture and start walking, and the moment she stopped grazing and saw me, she came straight to me (running if she was in the back of the pasture) while I stopped and waited. Halter in full view, wanting to me to catch her. At the same time, she would play the game of catch me if you can with others. Horses can be particular of who they like and who they don't. Could be because they don't trust that person, or they feel like they can get away with that behavior.
Glad that your horse chose to come to you, it is certainly an occasion to celebrate when you have had to work to get to this point. Congratulations! Posted via Mobile Device
