Ok so this has always been a problem with Dana. It has always taken a half hour battle to get her to cross fords, streams, culverts ect. But yesterday we found a new creek and the only way to get to this ridge that I wanted to see the veiw from was across this 60cm deep creek. And I kinda lost it, I tried everything. I tried circling her everything she tried to evade, I tried loosing my temper which really worked ......Not
I tried taking her for a walk and coming back to it but she wouldnt even stand and watch the creek. In the end I got really cross and hopped of going 'right! Your on your own you silly horse!' and sat on a rock. Lucky she just stood there staring which is reallyu funny coz she's got a bug eye fly veil on so she looks like something out of Alien vs Predator!!
But I ended up having to lead her and I've only got short boots so my feet got sopping wet and coming back I had to lead her again and we both slipped and she landed on my foot.
So I need your help. What do I do? How do I make it easier? And how on earth do I stop her reversing as an form of evasion?
