it took almost 3yrs. of me owning my mare too before I could take her out by herself without her having a heart attack! But it was well worth the time I put into her and gaining her trust.....I think age also is a factor in that too. We do have a 4yr. old boarded here and since his owner broke him he takes him out by himself all the time and has done two endurance rides (25 miles) this summer! This 4yr. old is almost like a older horse, he's been here since he was 6 months old and I did all the ground work with him and then the owner took over the under saddle.....the owner broke his back April 2011 while training a warm blood and he was back working with his then 3yr. come fall....it took awhile for him to get his confidence back too but his horse is one of a kind!
My horses are the joy in my life.....
