I really need some help with my horse. She's 11 and a 15.2hh chesnut mare, I've had her for 3 years. Trying to catch her is a nightmare, she runs off even if you make your way over slowly and not directly walking at her. No matter if I take her treats or go over with lots of stops with my back to her she runs off. She's always out in a headcollar.
We did recently change stables due to cost but she's settled in nicely.
If you get a hold of her headcollar she's fine and comes in happily, no trying to run off.
When you're out riding though she's hard to stop, she's currently in a french link snaffle, she's not got a hard mouth. In the school she's easy to stop but out is another matter. I was thinking of a pelham but maybe too harsh?
Can anyone help? Thanks so much!
