    Horse scared

    My horse is 15 years old and she is a Arab cross welsh and when I first got her there was no problems, now after her horse friend has a big fall near the arena shes so scared to go there! ( the horse is fine now) but she freaks out in there and breaks a sweat and then drags me all the way back to the paddock I'm starting to get scared of her! SHOUKD I seperate her from the other horse? Or move adjustments? PLEASE HELP THANKYOU

    Start with a little distance and lunge her. Reward even getting near there. She sees it as a danger but remind her that you are her rock. Horses are herd animals by nature so isolation isn't that good of an option. If you can have someone walk the other horse with you to the arena and back. Don't go in. Repeat that a few days and that should build her confidence back up.
