Do you honestly think I am going out there just to poke her with sticks to see how often I can get her to kick? No, she is my doll, I accept her for who she is and sometimes she is a pill. Just Like I am sure Bubba is outside of the forum, but we all poke fun and have a good time, and that's what the title of my post was sposed to signify. Its called sarcasm folks. I really just want to find something new to do with my horse. I just don't know how. I'm sorry none of you picked up on that.

There was that warning on the posting of the thread, the one that says posters beware or some sort, about how people come from different places and you should stop and consider. That goes for both.
But the key of offering yourself to criticism is hoping that the the people doing it are respectful. Which I have seen none of. Ya'll are rude and negative.

Would you rather me say, yes, tell me how to fix the kick - then never do so? I can do that, but I am honest, and blunt. Her true owner doesn't want me to fix it, so she does it and tries to get away, but we go on like nothing happens, and she moves smoothly from there on out. Please respect that this is how it is.

Then why in the bloody tarnation did you post a thread in the Riding Critique section?

I just really hope that a) this horse doesn't end up killing you next time and b) this horse doesn't end up being killed after being taught some bad, dangerous habits.

What? Do all morals go to **** as soon as I post here? Who cares - about respect, lets just beat her to death.

I am asking for new things to do with her, can you give me help on that? Without being negative, without being rude?
Besides beating her until her butt is bald (is that really a better alternative?)
I doubt that you can.

She kicked at the dog in the first video and nearly connected and she kicked at the black horse in the second video and didn't miss by much. If you keep letting her do it you'll soon see the harm it causes. You were also letting her wander all over the road and cut off the horse behind you. That's pretty bad manners on your part for allowing it.

The little haffie probably needs a diet before she founders if she hasn't already.

Morals? Are you kidding me? Honey, you don't know what rude is. Nothing has been posted here that isn't in your and your horse's best interests.

I've given you my advice. There is nothing additional you can add to your "training" regimen that will have any benefit whatsoever until you address the aforementioned underlying issues.

Whack her on the ass every single time she kicks. If she kicks when you whack her then whack her again. As far as the wieght issue, put her in a pen and don't feed her as much as she's getting now.

Okay, if you want to try something new, try working on lateral movements, collection, transitions and speed control as these will make her much more enjoyable to ride. Have you done any sort of gaming? You could try doing some barrels or poles just for fun.

WELL! She's a skivey little bugger isn't she? I totally get what the others are saying about her kicking, if I had been on the horse behind you I'd probably have tried to get after her myself. But, if you find it funny, ......just keep wearing your brain bucket.

As for new things, I like barrel racing, pole bending and competitive trail rides myself.

How is that any different from what I am doing now?
In both videos, I kick her, she kicks back, I kick back. In the first video she stops after the initial kick, the second it takes her a bit longer.
