Really?? If another horse affects my ability to do something so simple as get my horse out of a pasture or put my horse back in by threatening me or being pushy it becomes my business, in a real hurry. If a horse endangers me in ANY way it will not be tolerated. I ask forgiveness, not permission. I treasure my life and limb too much to let some pushy, undisciplined, disrespectful horse affect that. If it happens to be yours-Most likely I will say something to you the first time. If you do not do something to change that-the next time, the horse will likely have a CTJ moment.
I have one of these horses. He will take advantage if given an inch. He has gotten to the point where I can almost trust him ONLY because I have made it clear to everyone at the barn that his foolishness is not to be tolerated. I am fortunate to have a small barn with few ADULTS involved whom I know well. They also know I will take no carp off their horses.
Remember-each time we interact with a horse training takes place. Good AND bad.
