I was having the same issue with a horse in a paddock. The alley way went between several paddocks and that was the only way I could go.

My poor boy, I took to swirling the end of the lead rope as I approached this horse's paddock and my guy finally figured out I was protecting him. The other horse would go to the back of the paddock, but would also try to get my colt's rump once I was clear of him and my colt's rump was left ungaurded. Did some fancy backing a few times with loud HEY!!'s and he learned to not try to those last ditch sneak attacks.

I agree with what the other posters have said. So long as you're not hitting him, I don't think there is anything wrong with what you're doing.

When I tack up Sonnett, a riding school horse, he always swings around and tries to bite me. When he does that I always yell "Hey!" and put my hand up to slap him and he backs off. If you have to do that to get this horse to stop hurting your horse, than do it. You should not have to put up with it...

I would have done the same thing as you in this situation, because when I am controling a horse I think its like I am protection the horse (and myself) so in my opinion if you keep walking your horse past a horse that bites him/her. Your horse may loose trust in you.

Although that is just an idea I randomly had so it is probely wrong but whatever.

Actually you are very correct. When you are handling a horse you are the "boss" horse. Other horses need to know this as well. Using the least amount of pressure necessary to get the job done is how the horse would do it in a herd(ok, most horses). ;)

Pffftt! I use the "GIIIITTT OUTTA THAT!!!" or the "EEEAACK", depending on the offence. Funny how the sounds are universal....

No, verbal correction is not going to do any harm, giv'er.

You have every right to yell! Horses at my facility like to crowd the gate and occasionally attack the horse coming through.. I care a whip and whomever gets close to me gets a good whack on the butt or shoulder. I've gotten ran over BAD and its me or the horse! I don't care whose horse it is... If its attacking any horse I'm leading.. they better run. Same for the isle way! Your horse could run you over or strike you because some other horse is trying to attack you!

When I was riding at a barn back in the day, the whole rule was if a horse is lunging at you or is going to bite you, you give it a warning and if that doesn't work you give it a smack. You could always talk to the owner of that horse and tell her what he is doing, you never know she might even be like "BEAT HIS BUTT" ..

If this is an outgoing issue, Joshie is correct - the BO needs to be notified for more than one reason.

My boarders are not allowed to correct other horses. If there is an issue, they need to come to me and I will handle it. Some folks have zero tolerance for a horse showing an interest in a human and over react to the point of creating an issue (head shy or whip shy, etc).

This is an issue the BO needs to address. Perhaps this horse was starved due to a history of overt aggressiveness and previous caregiver scared to feed? In this case, the horse needs a good exam by a qualifed vet to try and determine if there are physical or mental reasons for the aggression.

You're all a lot nicer than I am. I would have no qualms about whacking any part of that horse that came close to me or my horse. I would use a wooden dowel if I had to but I wouldn't put up with it.
