    The horse is telling you he does NOT like the trails. He's an arena horse. Not all horses have to be trail horses. He's 20....with a recent knee injury. Does he HAVE to be a trail horse?

    He could also have some eye issues, and not see well on the trail or in the indoor arena.
    Franki had cataracts, took a while to figure out it was his eyes. Fine in an arena, and a basket case on the trails. Kids could ride him in the arena in a halter. He was terrifying on the trail.

    My husband's OTTB will be 23 in Jan. (really....not just the official b-day! LOL) He has always been the perfect gentleman except in one location. You cannot put DB in a round pen. He goes NUTS....bucking, kicking, insane. So our solution? He never goes in a round pen. We got him when he was 9 and he's been the perfect trail horse....4 wheel drive all the way. Point him, he goes. No quirks, no problems, no disputes. Our friends call him the thoroughbred with the quarterhorse brain. The first time he ever saw a cow, he just stood and stared until he felt ok about it and then walked on. Same with llamas, deer, foxes, turkeys. He will do anything asked of him as long as you don't ask him to go into a round pen. So we don't.

    And he was probably terrified too. DB is beginning to have some cataract problems and in the last year he's shyed at things that should be routine for him. He's having some other health problems and his trail days may be winding down. Whatever happens, he'll be in a nice roomy pasture...NOT a round pen!
