Basically at my house i have a field of youngsters, a 4yo, a 3yo (mine), two 2yo's and a 1yo. None of them belong to me apart from the 3yo. They are all showjumpers to be and are owned by a well known showjumper in my area. The problem is, they are in a field, with electric fencing, the fence is about 1m20.. when i take my 3yo out of the field, the other horses go crazy and the 4yo jumps the fence, causing the 1yo to also try (and sometimes succeed) in jumping it too. Now i am far too scared to take my gelding out because i am scared of these horses as they are youngsters that havnt been handled so they are very bargy and kick. im also scared that they end up hurting themselves. This is a problem for me because i am wanting to start my 3yos education, the sand paddock is RIGHT next to their field, about 15m away from the fence so they can see eachother, yet they still try and get after him.
WHAT DO I DO?!?!!!!? the 4yo i due to leave and go back to its owners competition yard but it may be for a couple months yet and i dont know if thats the problem as she is the one who jumps it but the others still go crazy! aNY SUGGESTIONS?! i cant afford the make the fence higher so does anyone know what to do? :(
