    That is what my Uncle and I were talking about. He would be better suited for somewhere that is flat. We would just hate to give him up if there is alternative ways to work with him. He is part of the family.

    He may have a fear of heights, like people do. He also may be in pain from being ridden 8 hours, saddle could be causing issues at that point, or just too tired to feel safe doing this.

    He also could have fallen down something like this before.

    You don't have any way of knowing, but this horse is telling you that he is not what you want, and if you keep insisting, someone will get hurt.

    Find another horse.
