Maybe you need to longe, or work him in a round pen before riding him; it sounds like he needs to get rid of excess energy before you get on!!! It's always a good idea to make sure a "fresh" or "rank" horse is focused on you before you even set foot in the saddle...from the sounds of it, he probably wasn't, if he wasn't allowing you on to begin with. Make sure he is paying attention to you on the ground, and then things will go better on top!

We've tried to lunge him, but he ges dominant towards you when the whip is picked up. And we don't have a round pen. =( like you gussed, mounting was a prob.

1. You don't need a round pen to lunge, just a lunge line.

2. You don't need a whip to lunge, but dominance toward a whip is something that should be adressed and solved.

Thanks any suggestions on how. We've tried rubbing him all over with the whip leaving it out in his paddock, any suggestions would be great thanks.

Is he scared of it, or aggressive?

F he is agressive when you lung and comes at you. Charge him with an agressive posture and if he keeps coming, get him with the whip

If he is scared of it, don't use it

If he's scared of a whip, get him use to it! Don't simply avoid using it! Also Obviously something was going to go wrong, I BET YOU there was many warning signs that this was going to happen. Like he DID not want you on!! Yet you still got on... no offense but you kinda deserved that..... If someone wanted to get on your back.. but your back was sore, or you just werent in the mood but they got on anyways you would shove them off!

And this whole you need to get back on is BULL!!!

Chance bucked me off once because of a tractor coming by and all this other stuff I was always taught to get back on.. but this time I couldnt .. I was way to frusterated and it probably only would have gotten worse.

Anyways even though I didnt get back on she's never done it again.. Horses usually have a pretty good reason to do what they do... its never for nothing.

Please please put the horse first don't just think about you and riding.

Next time you have a probably mounting.. don't just force him to stand .. get him to work, lunge him.. or do something interesting that he likes then when he's focusing on you then try and get on.

*sigh* People always blame the horse.. but usually its the humans fault.

Stand by his feed bin with the whip, and touch him all over while he's eating. Carry a whipe all the time when you are handling him. Ride just holding the whip. Basically make the whip a normal piece of everyday equipment, just like your boots or your saddle.

What do you do with the whip? It should be used as an extension of your arm, never to hit the horse or intimidate the horse.

Lunging can be done using the energy and direction of your body, or 'drive' in your body instead of a whip. I lunge both my horses without whips. It's a whole system of body language that is hard to explain over the internet, but it can be done and is not difficult.
