Gidget, you have lots of great advice here.
Now if you mentioned this, I missed it and sorry for that, but my question is; do you only catch this horse to work her? Or do you sometimes catch her, love on her and let her go? Or catch her and brush her and let her go?
With mine, I don't always work them when I catch them. Sometimes I catch them, give them a nice scratch in their favourite itchy place, then let them go. The point is, they never know if I'll work them or just pat them. With some horses, if you only catch them to work them, they start avoiding being caught.
Good luck with your mare!
Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
