My trainer has been working with me on this. She told me to not look at what the horse is scared of, always keep my eyes up. She also told me to not let the horse look at what she's worried about. I can handle my horse's worries when I'm with the trainer, but when I'm by myself, she seems to do it differently than she did at the trainer's and as a result, I'm not really sure what to do.
She naturally bulges away from what really worries her, as I think most horses will, and the trainer told me to just keep riding and try to keep her straight. But it seems like at home, my horse will lock onto something and even when I pull her face away from it and try to stop her looking at it, her ears are still pointing at it and her neck is sort of bent; she's not truly bending away from it.
I'm just a little confused; I don't know what to do. I'm frustrated with myself.
