This sounds somewhat like Strider. It is indeed very helpful to hear others'
experiences since we feel like we have so much to learn. I think one very
positive thing has been her relationship with our other horse. They became
instant friends since both were lonely before -- Prince was by himself and
Strider was too "stove up" to keep up with her pasture mates at the lesson
stable. I'm thinking that friendship has to help, too!
