My 4 year old Paint mare just got back from training. I realize round pen training and the obstacle course stuff the trainer did was important for her to learn. He was impressed on how well she trained and how she took to saddle, bit and lead. She will not go out on a ride by herself. She will follow another horse any where, keeps her nose at their butt. I've tried twice to get her out from behind the other horses when we are trail riding to lead out by herself, she refuses. If there is new terrain she seems to lose confidence in crossing even a flat pasture by herself. She is an ophan, she was hand raised from a month old and has had pasture mates, other horses, all the time. I know there's the pecking order thing and that is there. I've started on small rides, riding out with her pasture mates in sight. We have two geldings, also paints. She is such a beautiful, sweet horse and puts her heart into it in the round pen. The trainer was happy about how calm she was and learned her ground manners so quickly. I don't want her to be a follower, she's not learning anything that way or practicing what she's learned.
What can I do with her to help build her confidence?
