    No offense taken. Like I said, with so little info, just a guess & what I think more likely.

    Cool I'm always so cautious on forums, emoticons can only go so far in expressing my position!

    Wow this certainly created loads of suggestions thanks all. We have been having loads of time settling in to a routine and leanring all about the new environment etc etc and she seems to be settling well. I had ridden her a number of times before purchase and visited alot so knew the horse well but Im not convinced that a daily routine was estabblished and the attention paid to her was sporadic so new things to learn on both our parts. Im starting to lunge and its looking good. Xx

    Thanks for all your comments; I have had spent three weeks now bonding and getting into a routine. No tack /saddle in sight just walking round the new environment and getting used to each other. She still not sure about her stable. 5 mins and she's had enough even with nice hay. Pushes bum up againt the door so then we go as she's done well. This time will be extended bit by bit. I've learned not to be impatient and she's trusting me a bit more. She let me lead her though water today which she wouldnt do the other week. We are learning tenjoy each other and im not pushing her at all , weve got years ...........

    It seems I'm coming in late to the conversation here and am glad to hear you're making progress with this mare. Honestly, my first reaction in reading your initial post was the pain/fear likelihood that loosie mentioned. Of course, without the benefit of seeing what happened, it's a guess but it's unusual for a seasoned mount to throw a rider out of spite. The fact that she didn't want to come to you after that outing or follow you into the barn underscores the probability that something happened that really bothered her on this ride. You're smart to take your time, work on building trust and build a rapport on the ground before jumping aboard again. Good for you, Rachel!
