Letting my mare look around gave her the confidence she needed to go out alone or lead a ride. I was always in the back before I started riding her because I had a kicker..not anymore, I get tired of looking at butts all the time, haha.
She get a "Pay Attention" if she starts getting too into it (rare), but she can now lead with one other horse or 20, she can be in the middle, and she can still bring up the rear when I feel like it. I can have a loose rein on a trail now, I absolutely love it. I have no doubt she'd still be balking non stop if I hadn't have let her look around a little and take everything in, not JUST me. She's always paying attention to me, but why not everything else as well?
