    To take another horse or not

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this question. It seems like a simple question with a simple answer but idk. Let me start here I have 3 horses and my horses are in with my friends horses so all together we have 6 horses together. I have been asked to take my horse Krissy to a church event and give pony rides. Krissy used to be a trail horse that they put children on because she is so slow and lazy lol. The only bad thing is she doesn't like to leave the other horses. She is very buddy sour. I can take her out and ride her just fine and give pony rides on her all day as long as she can see the other horses. But I have to trailer her to the church so the other horses wont be around. She has never been taken from the other horses before so should I just take her and see how it goes or should I just trailer her best buddy with us?
    Thanks for your help

    Since it's a one-time thing and you want her to behave well if you're putting kids on her, I would go ahead and bring a friend along.

    ^^ agreed, that is the easiest way to do it, bring along a horse buddy and a friend to watch the other horse so you can keep your attention on the pony rides.

    Bring the friend, but if your going to do it again, I would try floating her some where else by herself.

    As my old horse was really buddy sour, but if I floated him somewhere by himself he was fine, if I however floated him with a friend and they became separated it was the end if the world.
