REALLY annoying mare... what to do?
Ok, Hermosa generally is perfact when she's on trail but now she has picked up this new bad habbit. How my horses get some of these strange habbits, don't ask. Between what mr toad used to do and now what hermosa DOES I have some devilish caballos.
Ok heres the problem:
My friend and I like to go out on trail together. She rides my horse Que Pasa and I take Hermosa. Hermosa is generally in front--constiantly looking back to see if QP is paying attention or not. Now, I know I sound crazy, but--When que pasa isnt paying attention EX: Looking around, snorting, etc, Hermosa tucks her butt and pretends to spook. --This is when the fun begins. Que Pasa then goes into panick mode and hermosa sits there and just watches. Its a very annoying and dangerous habit that hermosa has picked up just for shivs n giggles.
She does this about 10 times per hour trail ride.
She wont do it if im dancing her--she prefers to dance and doesnt want to walk, but some days I like to walk. So to get back at me/for amusement she does this.
