Buddy Sour Mare Question
I have a 15 year old Arabian mare that is extremely buddy sour when taken out of the herd. I use her for lessons and when she is tied and my riders are grooming and tacking up she is pawing, twisting, neighing, etc. For the most part if I take her up into the barn more she is better, by a little, but even if she can't physically see or get to another horse, she starts to freak.
So my question is: What are some natural techniques I can use to help her be more confident in being in the barn by herself?
It's not about disposable horses, it's about relationships for life. It's not about quick fixes and artificial aids... It's about savvy- true understanding and expertise.
