Hi, I'm 16 and I lease a horse named Psymara. She is a female gray Arabian and she can be very good at times, while other times she can be very high strung and not listen to me.
I feel like I'm missing something when I see/talk to her and let her go in the pasture. Don't some horses act happy/excited when they see someone they like? Or give "horse hugs"? Or at least act interested?
Psymara just stands around like she doesn't even notice me. I ride her a lot, especially during the 4H and Equestrian season.
This may be cheesy and I'm new so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section, but how can I increase my "bond" with my horse?
