I’m hoping someone can advise me. I acquired a TWH mare 2 yrs ago and have done natural horsemanship groundwork and in the saddle. She is very soft and giving in controlled environments. Mostly in familiar surroundings. She gets worried in arenas cuz she’s always looking for the boogey man. She spent a few years running wild from wolf dogs before her first safe home but the gentleman who gave her to me is aged and could not keep her. He did gentle her to lead, tie, trim and trailer. My problem is that she picks up a nice lope in the round pen but once out in the open, she seems to lose confidence and I wonder if she’s equating the increase in speed with escaping to survive. I have had a nice lope on her on the dirt roads following my other horse but only after quite a bit of distance when she can settle. Now my kids are all out of the house and I am the only rider. How can I help her through this insanity? She is twelve and to my knowledge was 4 at first rescue. I don’t have any training history on her so I approached her as completely green. She yields fore and hind, stops on a dime and backs by my seat, and gaits well when I pick up the reins. I ride her in a hackamore. Thanks for the help.
