You don't have to start over. All your hard work is still in tact, and your horse is as good a trail horse as she ever was.

What you need to realize is that this buddy sour problem was never preperly addressed properly in the training. You have a "hole" in the training, which doesn't invalidate any other training.

You just need to fix this hole.

And yes, your friend was wrong for leaving you like that. But remember, you can only take responsibility for your horse's training, never for what others may or may not do on trail. There will _always_ be someone else running off, taking lunch out of a plastic bag, flapping a raincoat, screaming at a spider... whatever. I have learned to accept others shortcomings as inevitable and do what I can to account for it in my horse's training. When the manure hits the fan, I would rather be safe than blame someone else for my injuries.

Yah but my only problem is I mostly go out on trails alone. No one ever wants to go with me its like really rare. Plus my horse is up for sale and its winter so I may not be able to fix the holes she has in time...

From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north
