I agree whole heartedly with MSLady! You handled her really well! If she was with other horses at her last home that could very well be the source of her stress, and that's what the pacing is about. She'll settle in eventually. Also, the more she comes to know you and accepts you as her leader her stress will diminish. You gotta watch those Appies sometimes, they can be real testers! They can be pretty strong willed. some of us consider that to be the standout strength of the breed. They're thinkers! Good luck and have fun!!!
