    Horse refusing to work?

    My horse hasn't been worked for two days and I was going to put her in the round pen to blow off some steam, but she would not go in trough the gate! I don't know what happened with her, but she was like a time bomb and started trotting circles around me, and she kept pulling on the lead rope. After like a half an hour she was perfectly fine, and walked right in. After we got done working I walked her around the spots she was acting out at, and she was fine? I don't know what happened and I really want to fix it before the problem gets worse? Thank you!

    Any chance your are in the northeast? A lot of horses were saucy this week due to the much lower temperatures. She was probably just feeling good.

    I think she is just trying to test you, to see what she can get away with. I work with a horse and she tries to test you sometimes also about going into the roundpen.

    MyBoyPuck- No, I live on the east coast, but not north. Wish I did though, because it seems cooler up there. :P

    Thrill Ride- She usually does, why didn't I think of that? XDD

    I'll call my trainer and ask her whats up, then. Don't wanna get hurt when I take her out again today. ._.
