I've tried working with one horse and just letting the other one be in the same area, but the other horse not being worked with will run next to me and cause trouble, so I need to just work with them one at a time.
I have to halter them both and tie the horse not being worked or ridden currently so I can get out of the gate and pen and then have to tie the horse being worked to the outside of the fence while I go back and untie the other horse. Ugg. Is that just pretty typical?
I'm finding it really difficult, when I had just one horse of course it was easy as pie to just work with the one, I never realized how tough it would be working around 2 horses.
