Ok so this is my first thread ever and this ismy problem...
I have 2 horses , my 7 yr old boy levi who is a new forest, and my 6 month old filly bell who is a SH.
They both get on like a house on fire.
Now levi has not long been broken in so taking things day by day.
He has separtion issues from Bell i can get on a work him in the round yard with her in a pen near by as soon as i get 100 metres or so away in the paddock next door to go an work he turns into a complete pest constantly trying to run back to her.
I tried the nicely nicely approach to him but he just walks all over you so to speak so i've gt alot harder on him recently as he's come close to throwing me out the saddle with his sudden turning to run back to her wen he thinks he can get away with it.
So taken to "sinking the boot in' to get him to listen which works for about half a secong then he's off again trotting backwards an sideways backdown the paddock to her. (talented huh??)
She's not so bad tho not innocent in all thisd ether she calls for the first 5 mins ur away then is not so bothered he never calls back just insists on trying to turn an run back to her.
need less to say its making riding an training him a little frustrating for myself
any thoughts advise etc i would very grateful!!
oh an i havew tried keeping them separate for a while to.
