In my barn, I asked if I could put my lease mare in a pasture or a paddock, I was told I couldn't because horses go crazy,hurt themselves and break everything.Do you have any opinions/advices on what I should do?

My mare never gets crazy in the pasture, but like the others said. Just take it easy, not every horse is the same
@mafaldavgccosta thanks, will definitely try that out!
If she's not used to be in the paddock it's natural that the first time she feels free she'll run like crazy! you have to get her used to it! try to go to the paddock with her, walk around with the lounge, give her more freedom every time! use protection on her legs so she doesn't get hurt! hope it helps
Only four of the horses in our barn go out to the pasture once a week and other two (the owner’s horses) go twice a week. They told me horses went crazy when in the pasture and that it was the reason why only those six horses went in the pasture, because they were chill.(Sorry if it’s really confusing)
