    Sorry for the triple post...

    Additionally, it is dangerous to have a horse turned out in a halter -- horses can get caught on fences and branches and really hurt themselves. If you put a halter on this horse for your own safety, you could endanger the horse, and then who would be responsible if she gets hurt due to the halter? There are too many liabilities going on here.

    If the weather is decent why not take a lawn chair and join her. Keep a stick handy. Make her move out of your space if she crowds you a bit. If you have some hay throw a pile out about 20' away. She will be glad of your company.

    By the way, I got along fine with the 4 Arabians who were here a couple years ago--they followed me on walks and respected my space. BUT the owner had spent a lot of time with them so they had learned manners. They sure are pretty horses--I miss them.

    No, no, no, was going to have on halter only when on lead--she gets to run around naked otherwise --good points, though.

    Saddlebag this is a method I have used with one of my horses when she decided she did not like me. For the life of me I can't think of one thing there is about me not to like Bound to get a reply to that one. But seriously, I have sat in the paddock with a stick and allowed the horse to approach me. Worked well and remember if it wont get out of your space tap it on the side of the face and it will move away. If it turns its rump to you get out of the way by at least 15 feet so if it kicks out it misses The horse may be craving company and you are it. Welcome to the herd.
