I have a question to add to this but since it is similar don't want to make a new thread..what if one of the horses in the pasture goes nuts when you take the other one out? I have someone boarding their horse at our place, and her mare is seriously attached to our one gelding. If I take my gelding down the road, the mare is running up and down the pasture, tossing her head, I am seriously worried about her jumping the barbed wire fence. How do you deal with that? (Besides asking the boarder, who is a dear friend, to leave..) My gelding is attached to her mare as well but it's not as severe.

I would personally suggest placing the mare in a corral or tying her to a tree while you're headed out so she can't accidentally damage herself. However, I don't know many horses (as crazy as they have gotten) that has literally jumped a fence. Although its possible, so stay safe

Calmly walk her away towards the trail like you were going to before. More than likely she will go back to the barn and that's fine. Let her then lope her til she's sucking air again. Calmly walk her away to the trail. She is going to love that trail and hate that barn and other horses. I seen Buck Brannaman do this with a participants horse in 09'. The horse was over weight which helped a lot. After about 20min that horse wanted nothing to do with the other participants (herd) and was more than happy to be alone with the rider. Takes time but loping is good for them and there is barely any fight at all with it. Gates, barn, herd, etc.
That is great advice! I am having a similar problem with my new horse. I will definitely be trying that.
