Why does she turn around in her stable a lot?

In the mornings my horse will turn in her stable a lot, I'll be putting rug and turnout boots on her and she will just turn around, I'm not sure why she's doing it, what is she trying to tell me? Or is she just being impatient because she wants to go outside? Does she just dislike me? I'm so confused. :( help anyone?

I'm guessing you mean in her stall? Most likely that she is just anxious about getting out of her stall.

I would make her back up and learn to stand patiently. Much like a horse that doesn't stand still when being mounted.

Ditto to above. It sounds like she needs to learn to wait. Delay taking her out some days, such as working her before she gets turned out. Work her by the pen before you turn her out etc...Good luck :).

She's just not focused on her task (standing still)

Do a little bit of ground work with her every time he focus is off of you and you should be good.

Some horses don't like waiting in their stall for things to go on when they know they're about to go outside (with their herdmates) but nevertheless they gotta stand still and listen
