    Riding accident = getting back out there?

    Well last Sept. Me and my horse were in a really bad trail riding accident ( well I guess we were just riding around ther county area). Anyways the accident involved a combine and us getting hurt and yeah don't really wanna talk about it but anyway I tried getting her back out and she freaks out even if she just sees a car. I tried tacking her out with a friend that's calm but she still kinda freaks out.
    Does anyone know what could help with this?

    I would stop hacking for a while and focus on groundwork and rebuilding a good relationship, her trust and confidence. Lots of flatworm. I would then introduce things in small doses and controlled. Short hacks at a walk - even if it's just down a ways and back. Let her feel comfortable around car.

    Agreed with everyone else. She needs time, and so do you. Work with her on the ground and don't rush through it.

    Good luck

    I do think that our relationship got better. What kind of ground work do you recomend? Yes I do need to get her used to cars! :)
    Thanks for the advice!

    Sounds like a good plan I think I am just as scared as she is but I think that I do pretty good of hiding it! I think we both do need time....
