Yeah, don't worry about hurting her too much. If she were to Piss off a more dominant horse shed be in way more pain than a humans little punch can give.
But she, can hurt and kill you. You can't be a pushover or softy around a horse. Go out there and act like a stingy bitch... Like 'get the hell out of my space!' Make her move just because you can.' If she's in the pasture and you see her make a Move to a patch of grass go Chase her away like, that's your patch of grass . I do random things around my horses just to keep them thinking and keep them on their toes.

Now I don't suggest you do what I did, but when I was feeding, my gelding came at me and kicked me in the hip. Everyone told me he was in pain because origionally he had an abcess in his hoof we were treating. Well, once I realized it I literally "chased" him down and kicked him in the ass. He was able to run and everything else without a limp. I literally took role as his boss as he was definetely moved after that. That was the last time I was kicked. The second time he bite me on the back and I can guarantee you he got it in the mouth. Last time he EVER did those things again. I had done nothing to him prior to those vices, but it was last resort. He wasn't acting out on pain because he was on a lot of pain killers including banimine. He was out to get me. Even till this day he respects me ever since then not fear me. If he feared me he wouldn't come up to me to be pet or ridden. But, like I said I wouldn't do what I did. I had to remind him a few times to respect my space such as stomping my foot to get his attention and he ran off. He knew what he was doing and that I meant business.


For your case, busting her on the ass with a rope as hard as you can is the first thing I would do. If continued, get meaner. She might get the idea. Had a shetland stallion given to us and the first time I lifted his leg he kicked me in the knee. I kicked him as hard as I could in the belly and sent that boy running on the lead rope that my mom was holding right before it swelled two seconds later. She just laughed but not after she found out he never dared me again. Aftder that episode he didn't dare to offer to kick again not at anyone at that matter. For biting, I have a colt who loved to nip since his testcles dropped. I got him to stop very quickly from pinching his lip, sharp yanks on the chain (over the nose), to busting him on the chest, and aggressively backing him up. If nothing worked he got it in the mouth. I only did it one time and he got the idea. Now he's bite/nip free.

All in all, hormones are something to worry about in pregnancies much later down the road. Correct them now and you won't have to worry around foaling time. She's in the early stages yet that what she's doing shouldn't be anything to do with her being pregnant. You don't want her to attack anyone especially after foaling.

Okay, even if the horse is in pain, I still don't tolerate biting it kicking. Lead mare wouldn't tolerate it, no matter what the situation.
But i'm talking one of my guys that know their place and know I expect perfect manners 100% of the time.
If they were colicing or i'm doctoring a cut, I expect then to stand and deal with whatever I need to do with them. Which, all mine always do.
If its a minor colic and a cut i'm just doctoring, if they did something stupid they'd be sent to work and be corrected, then I'd continuetaking care of their problem
My safety is first.

Exactly, safety is always important. I'm not willing to die for a mistake that wasn't ever corrected in the first place. That is why I actually chased him down and did what I did within a few seconds and got him on the mood like the boss mare does. I don't tolerate it and neither does the mare. I got along with the boss mare more than I did the ones I had to puut in their place so to speak. I might sound horrible and mean but disrespect sets off a trigger on me to instantly correct whatever the horse does. If you control his feet you control him by making him move.

I don't think she is in any pain because the vet just come out yesterday and checked her again so I don't think its pain I think she is just trying to test us to see what we are going to do. Overall she is a real nice mare

Kicking a horse as hard as you can....punching it in the face...good lord people! You want to correct the problem not make the horse head shy or afraid of you. If someone EVER kicked my horse I would lay them on the ground. OP, do you know how to use a chain over the nose? What some of these wise wonderful people are not saying, is you use it wrong and too forceful you can break your horses nose. It is a training tool yes, but not one to be used by someone inexperienced.

If she bites, and I have had a horse do this, I popped them in the chest hard enough to sting, with a crop. You have to stop the behavior without being abusive or having the horse think it is a game your playing. You could slap her hard on the muzzle but you have to do it within 3 seconds or they soon forget and won't remember why your disciplining them, so chasing a horse around long after the problem is not conductive either.

Janna...standing for colic, regardless of how severe it is? Really? Get a clue...I had a draft mare who severely colicked at our farm and was in distress and I would no sooner ask her to stand still than correct her for displaying signs of pain and discomfort. Choose your battles and think about what your disciplining for and how. Minor things yes.

I said slight one, now I've known ones colic horrible, they never were interested in being mean as they were in too much pain to want to. And I didn't really mean stand still, I meant being aggressive.

And what is popping a chest going to do when then mouth is what bit me?

Anyway lets not start crap on her forum.

Not changing anyones mind anyway

If she were my horse, pregnant or not, she would know that her butt is never to be aimed at me. So, if I was around her for any reason I would carry a whip. Not to smack and beat her with but to snap to get her attention and mover her butt away from me. I was pregnant once too, I didn't kick or bite anyone :P Pregnant or not you can teach her that. Move her butt away from you instantly, then you've taken away her opportunity to kick and taught her to face you when you're in her space.

To each their own, Grey Sorrel. There is NO way you can kick as hard as an agry alpha mare they might pull this BS on. Guarantee she would make them think twice about ever doing it again. Noone here is going to repeatedly punch their horse for no reason. If a horse tries to bite-yeah, punching it in the nose will teach it. You may not need that much force with all of them. They all have different thresholds. I happen to have one who will take 5 miles if you show any sign of weakness, so I would rather send a clear message the first attempt.
