    My horse recently starting balking. She will plant her feet and not move for nothing! I checked...

    all the tack and it all seems to be fine. Why does she does this and how can I correct her?

    I know, we had a horse once, who took to balking when we took him out to pasture. In this case, it seemed to be at a specific point, which we felt was related to some of the farm equipment scaring him. Taking him an alternate route, seemed to help.

    So, it may be a good idea to see if there are any environmental factors, which could be spooking her.

    Need to know a bit more about the situation, is it at the same place each time or just random? What's going on when she balks? What else does she do? Back up, rear, shake her head/tail?
