I have a 6 year old quarter horse that I have had from the very beginning. I saw her at 2 weeks old and here I am today with her. Tanner has been a very easy horse to break. Nothing spooks her. I road her all the time on the road or trails with no problems. She is the laid back mare of the farm. We boarded at one barn for 3 years then had to more. It was just 3 horses that had been together from the beginning. Last year, 3 new horses came onto the farm I was boarding at and well Tanner was the horse that everyone kicked at. She never kicked back, she would just move to a different area.
I have had to move Tanner for a number of reasons. We moved 3 months ago and everything has been great. I have been going out riding 3 or 4 times a week. Which I was unable to do at the last barn. I understand that she was not worked for well over a year ( not that I didn't want to just couldn't ). We have been working with her when just going for a little ride down the road after.
Well, now I have a bigger problem. She has kicked at 2 different horses when we have been out for a ride. The first time she was just walking down the road and she turned and kicked the other horse. Not happy as kids with riding the other horse and he turned and kicked back. Now tonight I was riding her and we were with 2 different horses and we were the middle horse on the side of the road. For no reason , she kicked at the back horse. THIS HAPPEN STOP.
So my question to you all what do I do to stop this behaviour. Where has my laid back little mare gone. I want Tanner back.
