My horses pasture mate is a sweet QH mare that was bought out of a pasture with another horse. I don't think that she had any experience with people before she bought and even now the guy that owns her(and the horse I lease) never does anything with her. I think she is just a doll so I decided to do some work with her.
Anyway, she has been saddled before but I won't even do anything like that with her. She is super shy and won't do most anything without my horse in the arena too. I can ask her to go over the bridge, over poles and has the BEST ground manners of any horse I have ever been around.
I feed her treats, groom her and just talk to her. She is so willling and is going to make someone a wonderful horse but she just needs to come out of her shell. Any ideas on how to make her not so shy and more outgoing?
