I have owned Grace for nearly 2 years now. We have had a bumpy journey together. I bought her as a quiet uncomplicated ride. It soon became clear that she lacked confidence and her default setting was to lash out, she became stroppy and would rear over my head when leading her. She frightened the life out of me! At this point she was being difficult for anyone who handled her even "confident" ones. I called in a NH member who was really fantastic and the ground handling has completely resolved. All through this time she was quiet to ride in the school, hack was a different matter! She is undoubtedly the bravest horse I have ever sat on, nothing seems to phase her but she is also a nappy nightmare! If something upsets her she either bounces sideways like Tiger or runs backwards at great speed. Then a few weeks ago we went out for a short quiet hack with another horse. We were on a country lane when my friend's horse was spooked by a monster grain lorry and he bolted down the middle of the road. Grace was a star. Since then I have developed a fear of meeting lorries, tractors, buses etc if we venture out ( Grace has never been worried about these before). I know my fear will trickle through to her and I am afraid of what she might do. Help!! I want to hack. Sorry for such a long post! I do love Grace and I feel generally that she trusts me too.
