    No horses can go in the barn to even get groomed or tacked up?

    I would tell the BO that if he wants her in at night, then you have to take her in and out during the day.

    Only one of his horse's is broke for riding, but is retired. The rest are unbroke Standardbreds or Broodmares. I completely agree. But sadly, you cannot change people. And just a recent update! This mare will follow the 23 year old Arabian into the barn without much hassle! She does plow people over... but definitely improvement!

    I was reading the clicker training thread yesterday and this problem was tackled successfully by someone else using clicker training within a very short period of time. Maybe look in that if you're at your wit's end. Not that you have to be at your wit's end to use CT! :)

    Are people looking at her when she starts this, as that will stop a horse in its tracks.

    And what about putting small amount of her evening meal in there at night, so there is a reason to want to go in.

    She sounds spoiled more than anything.

    I am going to share my opinion and clearly this isn't rude at all but think about it real quick. Is there something in the barn because the horse is probably scared to death about that barn. If she doesn't want to go in, don't force her. That's not fair. Want I did once with a pudgy pony that HATED the barn was put food and water in the isle way, and water outside where I put panels around the entrance. She had a choice. Food AND water inside the scary barn or just grass and water outside. Soon enough, walked right in and without a doubt, she ate every last bit of food and now lives happily in her stall and paddock and hasn't had a problem since. (: Really hope this helped
