New owners of trail horses - beware
So, all I wanted in life was a perfect trail horse. And I found one. Tested her to bits all over, on her own, in a group (In front and last), past farm animals and machinery, dogs, rabid teenagers, hedge trimmers throwing pebbles and grass at her feet - all perfect! Shied at a gaggle of geese - I took her word for it, they are quite nasty.
Weeeeellllll, get her into a school, indoor or outdoor and she melts down. I was utterly speachless, we are all so used to horses behaving much better in a school that I didn't even think this could possibly be an issue.
Anyways, we are now working on getting my horse used to an arena environment.
