My boy is perfect when we go out alone, no jigging, no pulling, sure he is stubborn, but when riding in the paddock, with his companion grazing close by, my horse doesn't listen to me, arks up with pig rooting and tossing his head, pulls like a tonne of bricks and is generally not pleasant to ride. This goes for any time we are riding with companions that either leave us(go for a gallop since I'm not at that ability yet, or we go to work "quietly" on flat work.) He will whinny and carry on and I am not quite sure what to do with him. Any suggestions? I love riding with others but find myself dreading it no matter how positive I try to be. Its to the point where I cant do basic flatwork in the paddock in the set out arena without carry on from him. I want to better myself, but I can't get him to focus. He is on cold feed. He is a 19yr old Anglo Arabian still young at heart. When he focuses he can take to anything.
