Escape artist

Now she is retired, I can’t turn my ex-competition mare out because she jumps out of the field and I can’t leave her in a stable all the time. I was asked to remove her from the retirement yard as she was jumping out of fields, away from her companions and careering around the estate in a state of hysteria.

Your mare sounds as though she is having a crisis of confidence even though she is just in a paddock. It sounds as though she needs to be turned out with a more suitable, reassuring equine companion who can teach her to be part of a herd situation again. If you were to bring her to Bowhayes Farm, I am sure we can settle her and teach her how to be a horse again.
