What do you make of that?

My horses are the same way at home too.  The horses
left behind whinny and then as we approach home on the
way back they'll whinny and the one being ridden will
often answer (just once).

Unfortunately, being someplace NEW can cause normally
confident and independant horses to regress into herd
bound wusses. :)  I'm pretty sure the only solution is
time, miles, experience, and patience.
