heard sour!

So my horse bell is a QH. I am training her to do barrels but I also use her to heard. So when ever I take her to the fair grounds to practice she freaks out and will not listen to me! Sometimes when I do a trail ride with my friends she will not stop for me if the other horses are running I don't know what to do!

For the trail riding you could practice the leap frog game. First you start at a walk.
The last horse in line trots by the other horses that are walking. You all do that until all horse can maintain a walk while another is trotting by. Then you bring it up to cantering by. Each taking a turn passing the others and being passed. Then reverse it, Canter and the lead horse slows to a trot and the others canter by and so forth until the lead horse can walk while others canter by.

Work the heck out of her where she wants to be. Let her relax where she doesn't want to be. There is ALOT more to it, but that's the general idea. If I had to explain everything that goes into it it could take me hours to type it out. You might want to try and find a good dvd that talks about herd sour horses and how to work with them.

Finding some people to ride with who are considerate and patient of your challenge may help as well
