I posted something a little while ago saying we have a new horse, and was wondering about a pecking order. Thanks for all that helped, luckily they are all now good friends! :)
I backed my youngster last summer, and kind of left him for the winter. He's four now, and I've started lungeing him again, and he will hold a bridle in his mouth and I'm picking his treeless saddle up tommorow.
Last summer when I started to ride him round the village, he was absoloutely fab, apart from if he passed another horse.
This makes him go nuts, rear in the air (I'd gotten off by this point) and try to follow them. I now have a horse he can follow, but I'm just wondering if anybody has any advice in case it happens again, or how to prevent it, as he's so great and willing otherwise on his little hack, and I don't want to be responsible for an accident to any horses or people.
He's in a snaffle, no noseband, and it'll be a treeless saddle.
