My friend lives in the middle of a long country lane, either end of which is a very busy A road. To hack out we generally ride to the end of the lane and then turn back as the A roads are too dangerous to ride on and there is no other way of making the hacks circular (there are no bridlepaths nearby). One of her horses has, however, realised that we always turn back at the end and started misbehaving: napping, spinning and trying to turn back home. He's a big boy and his behaviour is starting to get dangerous. Does anyone have any ideas how we could deal with the situation? We have thought about dismounting at the end and leading the horses round, making them think it's the end of one ride and start of another but would be grateful for any other ideas anyone might have.
