Re: [RC] my mare will only urinate in her pen at rides... - Diane Trefethen

Hi Jen,

... My trouble is she will not urinate anywhere other
than her electric pen.

Take her horse camping and leave your electric pen at home. At the camp, don't use a corral, tie her to the trailer. If she's never been tied to a trailer before, practice that at home first. She will not be able to hold it from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon :) Try to watch her and like Chris said, praise lavishly if you catch her in the act (right after she finishes). Once she begins to realize it's ok to pee outside her pen, she should mellow out on this issue.

...This last 50 had no checks in Camp... I thought she would have to go so bad she would give in.
Nope she held it the entire ride until the second
she was back in her pen.

You may need to tie her to the trailer at a ride or two also to really imprint on her that it's ok to go when not in the pen.
