If you where in driving distance, I would take her! I hope you figure something out :)

Any type of hobble out there that could help? Like some sort of grazing hobble? I think you can get them in nylon or leather... Lot of good advice here: Horse Hobbles: Safely contain your horse or mule

Also you could heavily advertize her as a prospect jumper now!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

The best thing I can think of that's cheap is to extend the height of the existing posts using electric sticks (the ones you push in the ground) tied to the existing posts using a couple of plastic pull ties (normally used to hold wires together); then run a strand or two of electric tape (if the electric tape is not readily visible then take plastic grocery bags, cut them into strips and tie them to the strands at fairly close intervals). Hopefully the visible addition would be enough to deter your adventuress. If that doesn't work, I suppose the next step is to actually electrify the addition. Alternatively, if you're going to the trouble of purchasing an electric outfit, perhaps you can create her own little paddock in the current pasture in a location away from the jumping spots - because it's electric and portable it could be moved around periodically.

Hope you can find something that will work, Endiku.

Heh...I actually thought of that EmilyJoy, but then decided to not even mention it for fear that you guys would think I was crazy. She's actually already hobble trained (part of the ground work I do will all younglings) but I wasn't sure that it was safe to hobble a horse all of the time...with other unhobbled horses.

Chevaux. Thanks. That sounds like an easy enough option... so I would just buy the tape without any of the electrical stuff and hope it deters her, and if it doesn't, but the electrical battery and such?

penning her away from the others is a possibility if I do get my own electrical set-up.

Yep, that's got it.

About hobbling her - I would be concerned about doing it without supervision as it would be difficult for her to get away from the others or get out of some other unforeseen difficulty.

Yeah, and she is the queen of unseen difficulties, so probably not a good idea xD

Haha I figured as much but I just thought I'd try! At least you figured out she can jump, that's gotta be a plus...right?
