Having to lead a horse on the roads
My 5 year old mare is very good to ride out on hacks in fields and on the road but once when I had to get of and walk down a hill because it was quite slippery in a place she has never been before she was strong to lead and was trying to get away, I thought I was going to lose her but I didnt let go. What way could I teach my mare walking on the road is ok without having to try it and fear her getting away? It was also harder because she has a martingale so I couldnt take the reins over her head.
She has been fine to lead in places we have ridden several times but new places made her panic.
