The horse that I have been working with for the past month has some how developed a habit of being a buddy to anoher horse. However, when they separated, the horse that I am riding starts calling out for the other and begins to completely ignore my cues.
I am wanting to find ways to discourage this dependence of another horse. Will taking them out alone several times and to other events get them used to the atmosphere? All of the calling out has happened at events, trail rides. I want to treat this horse with respect and not give them the wrong cues, but I am almost at the end of the rope.
Any suggestions would help.
