Nervous to be alone?
So Angel has had this problem for a little while and now I have the time to work with her, only thing is that I'm not quite sure how to go about this.
Angel is an older easy going horse. She is pretty calm and level headed most of the time. However when we go out into the desert, by ourselves, away from home she starts to get jiggy and hot headed. I usually work her around some bushes and stuff until she calms down a bit, but it takes her a while to calm down. The vet has refereed her to a "worry wart" where she always worries about stuff.
I've also noticed that when I trail ride with my neighbor she is fine, but as soon as she walks away from Angel, she throws a fit which includes some mini bucking and trying to run back to her? So how should I go about working her with this?
