Loosie, I've used the back and forth method successfully a number of times. I don't allow the horse to return to the other horse, just barely close enough that the screaming stops. As the horse goes back and forth the distance to the screamer is increased a little each time. The horse being ridden is also going thro the same process of high stress then none so it benefits both horses. After a while neither horse wants the stress and shuts it down.

Yeah, I wasn't responding to you Saddle, didn't read all replies. I think aiming to *avoid* going so far as to elicit actual panic in the first place is best for desenistising, as the horse is sort of on automatic pilot by that time.

My mare 6 years ago would have a tizzy when we go riding sreaming and running like a fool went through a fence. After that I just tied her up and we leave she screamed and threw a fit. After 4 days of her buddys being gone for 4 hours she got over it stopped the screaming and pawing and dancing around.

Now she could careless when they leave.

These are all things I have read that have worked for people is why I was asking. And my aunt's mare has ran and screamed non stop for two entire days while I took my horse on a trail ride so please don't be rude and say she will be fine in an hour when you don't know that. We are going to get a pony and see if that will help her.

What about the new horse in your other thread? The one you just got and can't lead? Is it going to be turned out as well?

Based on this thread and the other, you really need a professional to come teach you.
