Hi! I really need some help. I don't know quite what to do. For you to understand this, I'm going to just tell my horse's story. He is a 10 to 15yr old Geldingthat we got in August. When we went to see him, he never seemed spooky or mean. He was very calm and you could put him somewhere and he would stay there for a while. Well, when we got him home, he seemed fine, no attitude or anything. Then, I don't know if it is the winter that he hates riding in or what, but now he is quite spooky. I went out riding him one day and the wind picked up. He started to get a little uneasy and really wouldn't listen to me. We were heading home and he knew the way, so I just let him go, me guiding him only a little bit. Now though, even if he is in his pen and the wind starts whistleing he gets a little jumpy. Not bad, but still, it is a little scary.
He's has only bucked once and I don't know it that was on pupose becuase he might have stepped in a hole and freaked out. Also, (I don't know if this was play) my brother was getting something from this boy's pen and the horse came after my brother a little bit. He has also done this to me but I just don't know. I don't know a lot about horses, so he sort of scares me.
I live on a farm, so I don't take lessons. There is a guy by us that is really good with horses and who has horses of his own. I have been wondering if it would be worth it to ask him for help. If you guys could give me some advice, that would be well appreciated. Thank-you!
