Hi.

I haven't been on this site in a loooong time, but a friend of mine sent a link to it again so I started reading a bit.

I have this question. Since I started being on this site, I have got a new horse.
When I try to invite her to play and run, she just stands, looks at me or walks a few steps with her ears down.
It's like she won't "play" with me at all, I hope you understand what I mean.
I'd love for her to loosen up and have some fun in the arena. Is it just to be patient or can I do something/help her to want to play/run? She really never does unless I have a whip with me.

A picture of my darling Tinka :).

Hi Sassie, welcome! What a beauty your horse is! :)

We have a sticky on Forwards movement and running that collects different ideas on how to inspire a horse to run and play, and another one that explains how you can initiate the Wild games. If you have any questions, just ask. :)

Thank you! She's really catching people's attention when we are out!

Great, I'll check those topics :D.
