Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Good in traffic. Patient and stands when asked. Seen most farm machinery. Tractors, trailers, balers, muck spreaders, motorbikes, quads and bicycles. Is a good nanny horse, but too forward to lead a pony from.

Good alone or in company, prefers to be in front when out in a group. Is whip shy, so need to be mindful when riding around other horses.

Although will steady when asked and when she is used to you. Lots of stamina. Annie is whip shy. Annie very occasionally spooks. (will jump/shoot forward) Rider must be confident and calm.
