HI hi, Ok today I built a nice round pen, let my pony in it for a while to check it out, and then began the joinup process by driving her away with my voice and body language, and now and then waving the soft leadline like I've found in the instructions. She went away lovely for about 30 seconds, then kicked and bucked a bit as I expected as she worked out that she must run in a circular enclosure. But then she turned at me and reared and when I tried to send her away (NOT in an over-the-top fashion) she 'charged'! I was not expecting this as she is quite a mouldable girl and already follows us around a bit. I tried again so as not to leave it on that message with her, but it was too late, she reared and ran at me straight away . I can't find anyone else who has had this problem, and I just want to reiterate that I really wasnt being too scary! Help! Total fail.
P.s. The only thing I can think of is that the pen had to be on nice spring grass and that she was not best pleased about being made to do anything but eat..but this really shouldnt be an excuse :/
