Taking a second horse to begin with can help tPosted via Mobile Device
Thank you for the actual suggestion. He does load with another horse which makes me think he is herd bound. Ill look into Parellis method.

I know some horses like that.. when my horses don't want to leave the other horses.. I pen them up for a couple days away from the others that way they become independent.. I am doing that with my filly every now and again because I feel that if she knows that she is okay with out them she will be a better horse in the end? Could my decisions im making be wrong?

Thank you for the great suggestion! I have been separating him from the rest of the herd although doesn't seem to work. I'll keep trying though. He was alone with his prior owner which is possible why he doesn't like to leave his herd now? I don't know which is why Im asking for help from someone that has maybe went through the same situation!!

My 5 year old TB/QH paint gelding is above my moms little paint and below my QH whos 14. Sent him to trainers to get him trained after the last owner screwed him up! And my trainer said he took him 5 miles away from his barn and he acted up the whole time and so now after 2-3 months and getting better from an injury. I've been taking him on walks down our road about a mile once a day the first day he acted up and whinnied to the other horses but was fine other wise. Second day he did better didnt whinny just walked and stared around. I didnt go out today wasnt feeling good and I work all day tomorrow so ill strart again on thursday and go for two weeks before I try ridding him out. My Gelding seems to want to go home back to the barn not really to the horses..

I just use a rope halter and lead and let him eat grass we trot a little and do stops, turns, backing up but other wise I keep it pretty relaxing.

Heres him monday when we got back and in the yard.
