Hello, I'm currently looking at mare for sale which has a bit of problem with being touchy around her back legs. I was eventually able to run my hands down each of her back legs after about 5-10 minutes of running my hands all over her and reassuring her. She kicked out quite a few times before finally standing it and then was still quite nervy about it (quivering a little). So, for those of you who have dealt with this problem, how long did it take you to overcome this problem and were you able to overcome it fully. This horse seems to lack quite a bit of confidence with humans, how do you counteract this, she is also touchy around her years. She has been used as a brood mare for 6 years before being back in work for the last 8 months and is very quiet uinder saddle although uneducated. It is just on the ground she is not all that confident.
