Well cowboy bob, although you are trying to help, apparently YOUR help is not wanted! I on the other hand have a horse with a similar problem..
We went out on a trail and he crossed the creek going out. Coming back it was getting dark, close to feeding time, the other two horses went right through and mine flat out refused. Never pinned his ears, never acted nasty, just really did not want to.
I did a lot of pressure and release (kick and spin towards, as soon as he would take a step I would give him his head and quit kicking) but I never got him to do more than sniff the water. When he got fed up with being too close he would back up, so I would have to start the whole process all over again. I have videos, if you think they would help, but I would have to put them online. I haven't done it yet because honestly, it's embarrassing.
And yes cowboybob, i'm asking you!!
