Because you are too busy being all cuddly with him instead of being a leader.

I have gotten a welsh pony at christmas time. I hade went out every day and still do. Or at least try. But recently he has has gotten shocked by the fence and now he runs away when I get close to him. What to I do?

Unless you pushed him towards the fence, that issue and being caught are not related. It's a different issue of the horse not respecting you and pushing their limits. You want a horse to WANT to be with you.

Some horses aren't the lovey dovey type. I have a bunch like that. They know when it's time to work, they get the job done and don't want loved on. It's isnt a bad thing. Horses don't like to be loved on naturally, it's a learned behavior.

Then that is not the reason your horse is running away from you. It's lack of respect, possibly trust too.

Any suggestions on how to get him to calm down
