Tense at home by jacqui broderick in Forum · 4 months ago · 0 Replies jacqui broderick Has anyone else come up against this issue? My horse - a normally laid back and easy horse is decidedly more tense when I ride him in the menage at home. Out hacking - and in any of the other menages that we use away from home - he is perfect. If I ride him in the yard next to the menage, at home, or ride him up and down the drive, he is fine, but he is noticably tense when we go into the menage. He's never had a bad expereince in there. I broke him myself so I know he's never been mistreated or have any reason to be tense. Anyone else found this with their horses?
