So my horse won't join up with me. But the problem isn't that she doesn't want to be with me. The problem is that no matter what I do to try and send her away (flailing my arms at her, running towards her while yelling, cracking the lunge whip right behind her etc...) she just looks at me and doesn't run away. The worst she will do is start backing up while facing towards me. I can jump up and down and wave my arms in her face and she will just spin towards me and back up. I have literally had her walk backwards around the entire full sized arena. The thing is she looks kind of scared so I don't know why she doesn't take off. All the other horses have never given me a problem. The only way I can get her to run is if I grab her halter and run along side of her. But as soon as I let go she slams on the breaks and spins. If I manage to piss her off enough (typically after 20 minutes of this) she might start turning her butt towards me which makes me uncomfortable. Like, I don't want her to kick me. I WILL NOT hit her to get her to run away from me so don't suggest that. The point of joining up is to form a better bond, not scare the hell out of your horse. And right now I feel like I may be scaring her by trying to join up. How am I supposed to get her to join up with me if I can't get her away from me?
Also in case it matters she does not lunge. I mean I have lunged her once or twice but she doesn't know how to do it and in all honesty I've only done it a few times with other horses.
I will try to get a video up of this sometime if it will help.
