Is that a respect, frienship, or fear?

I have a question. What do you think is between the two of them (or really the two of us ) ...

Do you think the pony goes near that girl (me) because
a) she wants treats
b) she want to follow her aids ("my friend" calls me)
c) she follows becuase the "master" calls-she respects the girl
d) she follows becuase she knows if she doesn't, she will be punished
??

It seems to me she had no "lust", she didnt want to play....

well we never actually played, she is a very difficult horse and i never wanted to risk giving her the opportunity to disrspect me (respect issues for years)... this is from our vacation /training stay at a foreign barn, that is why she is alone in the paddock, i wanted to keep her company. (she usually is out of the herd anyway, she is small and big horses push her out)

i no longer have contact with the pony :( I am just browsing through old photos and videos.

I can take any critique. Just be honest.

My guess is she did it for the treats. Did you try it without treats, and if so, did she still follow?

she followed me. even without them, i "visited" her more often through the day. I used treats this time because going backwards was new to her, we needed prsctising...

She also greeted me everytime I got to the barn, when at home...
