I really like the new yard but obviously Roxy hasn't settled yet. We moved on Tues. She has to stay in after being wormed last night until Sat morning (actually she could go out tomorrow but I want to be there as she'll be turned out with the mares, and unfortunately I have to go into London for a meeting and won't be back until late). I took her into the outdoor arena to lunge her today. She was actually fine to lunge, but very spooky when I walked her round inhand, in one corner particularly. There's quite a lot going on around the arena, with horses she doesn't know, and tractors parked etc so I know it's a lot to take in. She's one of those horses that can be difficult to lead but is fine to ride, but even so, I am just feeling a bit of anxiety about jumping on! I'll ride on Sat or Sun depending on how everything goes. Any tips on how to make this as successful as possible?
